SEBASTIAN – Indian River County Law Enforcement agencies come together for Christmas in July to raise funds for children/families who are facing financial hardships.
Chrismas in July will be at Riverview Park in Sebastian, Saturday, July 21, 2018, from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. This event will include small business vendors, DJ SHHH-OP Entertainment, food, games, face painting and much more.
Shop with a Cop is an annual event in which law enforcement agencies work together to make it possible for the children in their community to have a Christmas to remember.
Indian River County has a lot of children who would not have a Christmas if it weren’t for programs such as Shop With A Cop.
A few days before Christmas each officer is assigned a child between the ages of 5-17 and is given a $100 gift card to use to shop for the child. This is made possible by fundraising events, and donations.
For additional information about Christmas in July or other ways to help please contact Officer Ashley Penn with the Sebastian Police Department at (772) 589-5233 ext. 8573 or the Indian River County Sheriff’s Office at (772) 978-6248.
