Thanks to our incredible sponsors and donors, Columbus Division of Police Officers Lutz, McNeely, and Meeker transformed into Santa's helpers for many children in Linden.
Our journey began at Walmart Dublin - Britton Pkwy, armed with a mission to bring smiles and laughter to as many kids as we could. We roamed the aisles, picking out the perfect toys, cuddly stuffed animals, exciting games, and the fun electronics.
We laughed and chatted with the staff and other customers as we filled up four carts (!!). The magic of Christmas was tangible, with every toy symbolizing hope and happiness. It was more than just a shopping trip; it was truly a testament to the power of community.
This heartwarming evening wouldn't have been possible without our amazing sponsors - 5812 Investment Group, Byers Airport Subaru, The Cooper Family Foundation, CME Federal Credit Union - and the generosity of many individual Starfish donors. Your support was the cornerstone of this wonderful event.
To everyone who played a part in this special evening, we extend our deepest gratitude. You've made this Christmas unforgettable for many children in Linden.
