Scout troop helps Shop with a Cop

The Standard Journal - - LIFESTYLE - From staff re­ports

Lo­cal youth gave back once again as a scout troop helps with shop­ping trips for chil­dren in need for Christ­mas. The Aragon Boy Scout Troop No. 17 helped the Pauld­ing County Sher­iff’s Of­fice with their an­nual Cops for Kids Christ­mas shop­ping event.

This was the 19th an­nual Pauld­ing County Sher­iff’s Of­fice Cops for Kids Christ­mas shop­ping event held on Dec. 16 which took over 225 un­der­priv­i­leged chil­dren shop­ping with a Deputy.

Troop 17 helped with ev­ery­thing from un­load­ing bug­gies to scan­ning items and putting them in bags. The Scouts were an in­valu­able as­set to this process and it was a great way for them to give back to the com­mu­nity.

A re­lease f rom t he group said that “each one of the Scouts en­joyed their time help­ing with the Cops for Kids event and have al­ready asked to come back and help again next year.”

They also wished every­one Merry Christ­mas.
