The Kentucky State Police Professional Association District 16 is currently conducting a fundraiser to help disadvantaged children in the area just in time for the Holidays.
For many years, KSP Post 16 spokesman Trooper Corey King tells WMSK News troopers and local law enforcement officers come together to participate in “Shop with a Trooper” program, which allows troopers and officers alike to assist low income children by shopping for necessities and toys just before Christmas.
Unfortunately, there are many children in the tri-county area that may not get a Christmas.
Fortunately, Trooper King says the KSPPA District 16 fundraiser of selling bracelets will help less fortunate children shop for Christmas.
Not only does your donation help a child who is less fortunate to have a Christmas, Trooper King says your donation would also show your support for law enforcement.
The Thin Gray Line, Thin Blue Line and Thin Gold Line silicone bracelets are just a few dollars and can be purchased at the following locations:
KSP Post 16 in Henderson is located at 8415 US 41 South and is open 24 hours. The Owensboro office is located at 221 St. Ann Street and is open Tuesday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Saturday 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. The Owensboro location is closed on Sunday and Monday.
If you purchase a bracelet by check, please make your check payable to KSPPA District 16. For any questions, please call Post 16 in Henderson at 270-826-3312.
