Sheriff Keith Dunagan invites you to help create a memorable holiday experience for some of the wonderful children of Wythe County. In 2017, we were able to raise enough money to take 53 children Christmas shopping at our local Walmart. To kick off our fundraising for the 2018 SHOP WITH A COP program, we are asking for community and local business support! For each $100 of donated funds, a local child will be matched with a deputy or employee of the sheriff’s office to shop for Christmas gifts. 100% of donations will be given to the children! Not only does SHOP WITH A COP build a positive relationship between the child and law enforcement, it shows a true giving spirit to those who are in need. To make a donation, please contact: Major Anthony Cline 276.223.6027
