WYANDOTTE, OKLAHOMA -

The Wyandotte Nation Tribal Police Department (WNTPD) participated in the “Shop with a Cop” program, taking 16 kids from area families to shop for Christmas at the Walmart in Neosho Saturday, Dec. 17.

Local families experiencing economic hardships can’t always provide their children with their own celebration of Christmas. That is where the “Shop With a Cop” program comes in, joining these underprivileged children with local police officers, providing the children with money to shop for Christmas presents for their families and themselves. This is the third year the police department took part in the program, receiving $3,717.90 in donations.

The WNTPD officers picked the families up at their homes, took them to shop, treated them to pizza and returned to wrap gifts at the Title VI Building, 64700 E. Hwy 60 in Wyandotte.

Six officers and 19 volunteers helped with the shopping and wrapping. The kids bought gifts for themselves as well as 16 siblings and 18 parents.

In addition to the gifts, each family received a ham, bag of potatoes, six cans of vegetables, box of stuffing, and a box of corn bread. Each child received an apple, orange, candy cane, cookies and M&M’s.

Officers: Ken Murphy, Faron Lee, Richard Teeter, Steve Johnston, Jared Robinson, and Philip Brice.

Volunteers: Janette Arnold, Holly Hilliard, Heather Douglas, Nita Hagebusch, Kristy Howard, Steve Johnson, Darrell Robinson, Jan Woody, Leesa Hibbard, Debbie Dry, Christen Lee, Susan Friend, Haylee Griffen, Caleb Friend, Kristi Johnston, Jan Everley, Dana Butterfield, Pat Wilson, and Brenda House.
