Woodinville’s first annual Heroes and Helpers event

  • Written by City of Woodinville Police Chief Sydney Jackson
The school resource officer (SRO) was working with Woodinville High School, Leota Junior High and Timbercrest Junior High to support the “Shop with a Cop” program which was held in the city of Covington.

When SRO Callahan found out it would be difficult for our north end students to participate due to transportation issues, he contacted the Woodinville Target to partner up for our own “Heroes and Helpers” program.

Quiana Didrickson from Target gave each student a $50 gift card to spend for Christmas, and each officer helped a student with their individual shopping inside the store.

The event was a great success with everybody enjoying the holiday spirit.  We anticipate making this an annual event with our Target Store partners.
