Target’s donation goes to helping kids in the county
The Target Corporation recently donated $5,000 to the Kids & Cops program.
Store Team Leader Jessica Szota and Target Assets Protection Team Leader Brandon Andersson presented the check Wednesday, March 9, to Sgt. Roger Barton and Sheriff Troy E. Nehls.
The Kids & Cops, Inc. is a non-profit organization comprised of deputies from the Fort Bend County Sheriff’s Office. The goal is to reach every school-age child in Fort Bend County with a positive message about growing up, life and the real world.
Deputies focus on leadership, team building, motivation and problem solving techniques.
“We thank Target for reaching out to the community in such a positive way,” said Sgt. Barton. “This donation will help the Kids & Cops program and the youngsters of Fort Bend County will benefit from this generous gift.”
Sheriff Nehls agreed.
“Target has a large presence in Fort Bend County and we appreciate this gift, which will bolster our program and benefit children in our local schools,” Nehls said.
The Kids & Cops effort has been active in Fort Bend County schools for 17 years.
