The Fairfax County Sheriff’s Office continued an annual tradition of collaborating with Target Department Store to provide back-to-school shopping opportunities for children in homeless families.
At the “Shop With a Sheriff” which took place at the Burke Centre Target Aug. 13, assistant store manager Nathan Cooke was joined in a ceremony by Board of Supervisors chairman Sharon Bulova, Dupervisor John Cook (R-Braddock), Sheriff Stacey Kincaid and deputies and members of the Sheriff’s Office.
The program benefits school-age children temporarily living at the Katherine K. Hanley shelter in Fairfax, Patrick Henry Family Shelter in Falls Church and Next Steps Family Shelter in the Mount Vernon area of Alexandria.
Last year, “Shop With a Sheriff” provided 36 students with backpacks and Target gift cards.
