The Hope Police Department would like to thank the many people who contributed to our Santa Cop Program this year. With the support of our community, we will be able to help six families, a total of 17 children, have a Merry Christmas. This year donations were received from: Fred’s Dollar Store, J.M. Vaughn, Hope Lioness Club, Darryl Tate, Mary Hinton, Wilson Farm INC, Catherine Cook, Tony Yocom, Susan Still, Larry York, Jerrold and Twyla Pruden, Kiwanis Club, Southland Land and Development CO, United Way of Hempstead County, St. John’s United Methodist Church, Alan Christie, Chris Saunders, Bobbie Sparks, members of the Hope Police Department (Beard Tax, Make Up Tax), Hempstead County Sheriff’s Department, and several others who wished to remain anonymous. Without the warm hearts of the people of Hope and Hempstead County, we would not be able to help those most in need in our community. The Hope Police Department will be delivering the toys, clothes, and other gifts on Christmas Eve around 5pm.
