FORT LAUDERDALE, FL – The Broward Sheriff’s Office, in partnership with the Sheriff’s Foundation of Broward County, Alfa Romeo of Fort Lauderdale and Proctor & Gamble, is helping children in need with a drive-thru holiday celebration and gift giving.
For years, Broward Sheriff’s Office held Shop with the Sheriff events to provide children with gifts during the holidays. Due to COVID-19 precautions and to minimize contact, the format has changed, but the goal is the same – to bring joy to children in our communities. Four hundred students from elementary school age through high school were selected by Broward Sheriff’s Office school resource deputies to receive a $50 Walmart gift card, toiletry kits and presents for the recipients’ siblings.
