On December 5, WBR Sheriff Deputies and volunteers will stand outside of Walmart, hoping to make a child’s dream come true this Christmas.

The Christmas Crusade for Children of WBR has been around for more than 25 years and will continue to improve as the years pass by.

Deputy Jamie Waters explains, “Many children would not even experience Christmas if it weren’t for this Christmas Crusade Program. It means a lot to a kid to have something to believe in.”
