“The chance to spend time with these children is priceless, but to help make their Christmas wonderful is a blessing," said Glenn Chrisman, chief of the Police Department. "I would like to thank Wal-Mart for hosting this event, as well as all of the donors and police officers who helped make Christmas possible for these young children.
