I came across this on my Facebook feed this morning. As many of you may remember my family had the opportunity to meet Officer Bobby White, aka the Basketball Cop, last year. Then in September our local square dance clubs held a toy collection for the Basketball Cop. We were then able to present the gifts to Officers Bobby White and Becki Holcomb in October.
Not only do they help organizations here in our own communities and state they also help others all across the United States. Currently the Basketball Cop Foundation is hosting a fundraiser for the Community and Cops Christmas in Jacksonville,AR:
Our good friend, Jacksonville AR K9 Ofc Johnny Hicks needs our help. The usual funding for his agency’s annual event which provides Christmas gifts for kids fell through this year. Ofc Hicks has stepped up and is raising the funds himself. Every $100 raised equals another kid getting to participate. We have set up this fundraiser and will match up to $500 in donations. Please consider even a small donation and PLEASE SHARE. Thank you!
As I am writing this post they are just $350 away from their goal of $1000! If you have been looking for a charity to donate to then maybe this would be the one for you. You can make a donation by clicking here.
