Heroes and Helpers Looked a Little Different This Year

Heroes and Helpers - 300

Each year the Blaine Police Department partners with other public safety agencies to take local students on a shopping spree for holiday gifts. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic the in person shopping event could not happen this year but there were still kids in need of some holiday cheer. Led by Detective Orin Christensen, Heroes and Helpers pivoted and still provided a holiday shopping spree to 60 local students. The students who were picked to participate in the program were selected by staff at local elementary schools. Then the students and their families filled out a shopping list online and the heroes went to work. Each family was paired up with a public safety individual who shopped for and wrapped their presents. Then a caravan of public safety vehicles delivered the presents to the kid’s homes on December 22. Heroes and Helpers might have looked a little bit different this year but it was still a huge success.
