The Bladenboro Police Department has completed their annual Christmas for Kids for this year and Chief Chris Hunt deemed this year’s effort a rousing success. He said the officers were able to take 21 children shopping and the Southeastern Cruisers Car Club partnered with the police department to provide the children with bicycles.

Each child was able to purchase a winter coat, three to five outfits, shoes, socks, undergarments, hygiene products and toys, said Chief Hunt.

“We thank everyone who donated because their donations ensured these kids had a Christmas to remember. We hope they (those who donated) have the satisfaction of knowing they helped these children have a brighter Christmas,” said Chief Hunt.

Chief Hunt said that its not too late to get your donations in either. While this year’s shopping trip was a success the department is accepting donations towards next year’s Christmas with Kids. Checks can be made payable to Christmas for Kids and can be dropped off at the Bladenboro Police Department or mailed to Bladenboro PD, P. O. Box 455, Bladenboro, NC 28320.
