Santa Cops for Kids
Our Origin. Our Mission. Our Honor.
The Santa Cops for Kids Program was founded seven years ago by law enforcement officers from the Nodaway County region. During that time, law enforcement volunteers have dedicated countless hours to fundraising efforts within the community, including the Putting for Presents Golf Tournament, which serves as our primary fundraiser. The proceeds raised during those efforts subsequently support our year-end shopping event, during which uniformed law enforcement officers escort area children-in-need to a local retail establishment, purchasing a plethora of wish list items, and subsequently brightening their holiday experience in the process. While various clothing items and toys are the popular purchases among the attendees, volunteers have also purchased food related items upon the child’s request, a truly heartbreaking experience for all involved in the Santa Cops Program.
Since its inception in 2013, the Santa Cops Program has been fortunate to see growth not only in fundraising efforts, but also in community support. That community support, in turn, has allowed us to assist an incredible number of Nodaway County children over the past four (4) years – over TWO-HUNDRED SEVENTY (270) in total, far exceeding accomplishments we ever thought possible. The incredible outpouring of support from the local community has allowed us to achieve these amazing goals. We seek to continue our upward growth, and with your assistance, hope to once again assist a record number of Nodaway County children this holiday season. By supporting the Putting for Presents Golf Tournament with your participation or sponsorship, you’ll have a helping hand in providing a child in-need with the Christmas of a lifetime.
