Thanks for making annual Shop with a Cop a success

This week’s bouquets go to:

From: Lt. Todd Tardiff, Delta County Sheriff’s Department

Residents of Delta County:

The Delta County Sheriff’s Office would like to thank everyone that assisted in making our annual “Shop with a Cop” program a success. The generosity of the community we live in is nothing short of amazing.

We would like to say a big thank you to the Escanaba Walmart store. Walmart has been with us from the beginning. We value and appreciate the partnership that has formed while working together to make this event successful. We would like to thank the Walmart McDonalds for providing lunch for participants, officers and volunteers. We would like to thank Radio Results Network (RRN) and the Daily Press for helping us spread the word to make “Shop with a Cop” such a success. We would like to thank every business, organization and individual that made a financial donation to this program. Truly, every dollar donated makes a difference and we appreciate each and every one of you. We would like to thank the officers, volunteers and school personnel that assisted with the program. Without our volunteers, this event would not be possible. We appreciate you and wish we could personally thank each and every one of you by name.

Last but not least we would like to thank Sarah (Delta County Sheriff’s Office) and Wendy (Walmart) for all the work that they both do for this program. Without you two, this program would have never grown and touched so many young lives.

“Shop with a Cop” 2016 is definitely one for the books and we can’t wait to do it again next year.

Again, thank you! We are wishing all of you a safe and happy New Year.

From: Unitarian Universalist Bay de Noc Fellowship

The Unitarian Universalist Bay de Noc Fellowship would like to thank CR Meyer, DDA, and the City of Escanaba for their help putting together the New Year’s Eve Pasty Drop. Without their generosity, it would not be possible.
