On Sunday December 22nd, Fairview Township Police assisted Santa with making some early deliveries. Police Officers volunteered to escort Santa to local residences where there were kids who could use a little more Christmas cheer. The police department partnered with North Shore Friends in locating some families having a difficult time this holiday season and arranged for the deliveries. Through this event, over 65 kids and one senior citizen received gifts from Santa. North Shore Friends arranged similar deliveries recently in other nearby communities as well, providing presents to hundreds of kids. The Fairview Township Police Department feels that giving these kids a better Christmas is just one more way we can serve our community.
This and the other events would not have been possible without the assistance of North Shore Friends. North Shore Friends is a non-profit organization who’s goal is to help underprivileged kids in York, Cumberland, Perry, and Dauphin Counties. Funding of this program is made possible through business and community donations, as well as various fund raising events.
