The Altavista Police Department has been growing beards to spread Christmas cheer by recently raising $2,530 for the Shop with a Cop program!

The Walmart Foundation donated $1,000, the Campbell County Sheriff’s Office pitched in $300, and the rest was given by people and donors.

Chief Merricks and Officer Osborne participated in “No Shave November” to raise money for Shop with a Cop.

Now, the department will partner with Altavista Elementary School to take 35 kids shopping. 

That will happen at the Altavista Walmart on December 22nd at 9:00 a.m.
