TO THE EDITOR:

The holidays are around the corner, and it’s time once again for the Artesia Police Department, Artesia Fire Department, Eddy County Sheriff’s Office, New Mexico State Police, Eddy County volunteer fire departments, and many other volunteers from various departments to host our annual “Shop with a Hero” event.

This event gives the less fortunate children in our community the opportunity to take part in a wonderful and positive experience that they will cherish for years to come.

This event has been in Artesia since 2006 and could not be possible without the support of our community. Together, we can continue to make this experience possible for 50-100 local children.

If you would like to make a donation for this outstanding cause, please make your tax-deductible donation out to “Shop with a Hero” and send it to: Artesia Police Department, Attn: Cmdr. Ricardo Huerta, 3300 W. Main St., Ste. E, Artesia, N.M., 88210. If you have any questions, please feel free to call Cmdr. Huerta at 575-746-5000.

Our organization understands that times are hard and money is tight; therefore, any monetary donation would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance for your dedicated support to the children in our community!

Sincerely,
Shop with a Hero Committee
