Kops for Kids event gives children a special holiday

The annual Kops for Kids "Holiday with a Hero" event that took place Dec. 16. This year the program assisted about 50 children from the Wisconsin Dells School District with purchasing of gifts and clothing for the holiday season. Children were selected and referred to the program from teachers from the Wisconsin Dells School District. They are paired up with a member of public safety for a day of shopping, food and other activities. After shopping they returned to the school for a pizza party and wrapped the gifts they purchased. This year the program had public safety workers from the Lake Delton Police Department, Wisconsin Dells Police Department, Baraboo Police Department, Sauk County Sheriff's Department, Delton Fire Department, and Dells-Delton EMS. Assisting at the event were volunteers from Wyndam at Glacier Canyon Lodge, as well as Kohl's Department Store of Lake Delton.
