TO THE EDITOR:

The Artesia Shop with a Hero Committee is requesting donations from the community of Artesia to sponsor its annual “Shop with a Hero” event.

This event bridges the relationship between local law enforcement and first responders with children of the Artesia community. Participating children are identified by schools, churches, social service agencies and first responders, and with your help, the committee seeks to sponsor at least 100 children this year!

This event would not be possible without the support of the community, and all donations in any amount are graciously accepted. If you would like to donate, please make your tax-deductible donation out to “Shop with a Hero” and send it to the below address. Please be sure to include a return address for receipt purposes.
