The Paulding County Sheriff’s Office is gearing up for the annual Cops for Kids Christmas shopping program. Cops for Kids obtains its funding through generous donations from local businesses and citizens, as well as several fundraisers which are hosted by Sheriff Gary Gulledge and the Paulding County Sheriff’s Office. With the help of the community and local business owners, this program has been very successful over the years.

Community-Spotlight-Cops-for-Kids-Boys-.jpgWhen this program began in 1998, we took 20 children shopping. Currently, we take approximately 200 children shopping each Christmas. We have met and exceeded our goals every year thanks to contributors like you.

Sheriff Gulledge and I would like to personally thank the businesses that have been with us since 1998. YOU are one of the reasons this program has been so successful. We also thank our many partners and donors; no matter what year you joined us. It takes everyone’s participation to be successful.

Community-Spotlight-Cops-for-Kids-Dogs.jpgWe hope your business or organization has been successful this year and you will be able to donate. It only takes $200.00 to sponsor one child. Every donation helps, and we encourage you to join forces with other business owners or individuals to sponsor one or more children.

If you feel compelled to donate, please make checks payable to “Paulding Cops for Kids.”  You can drop checks off in person or mail them to the following address:
