The Seneca County Deputy Sheriff’s Police Benevolent Association conducted its eighth annual “Shop with a Sheriff” event on Saturday, December 3rd, 2022. As in past years, members of the PBA escorted ten children from across Seneca County that were chosen to participate in the event. Members of the Seneca County Deputy Sheriffs PBA volunteered their time to take the children Christmas shopping at the Seneca Falls/Waterloo Walmart. Following the shopping spree, a pizza lunch was generously provided by the Ovid’s Pat’s Pizzeria. After lunch, there was a guest appearance from Santa Claus. “It truly warms our hearts to see the excitement on the faces of the children when they arrive to the event. It does, in addition, help bridge the relationship gap between community members and the Law Enforcement Officers who serve the community,” said Seneca County Deputy Sheriff’s PBA President Dan Jacobsen.
This event is funded by both Sheriff’s Office employee unions through the “No Shave November” and “No Shave December” authorized by Sheriff Luce. In addition, the event is further funded by numerous sponsors. Without these sponsors, this event would not be possible.
The Deputy Sheriff’s PBA would like to thank the following sponsors for their generosity and assistance:
The Protectors LEMC
South Seneca School District Staff
Romulus School District Staff
Waterloo School District Staff
Summit Federal Credit Union
Seneca Falls/Waterloo Walmart
William and Rachel Mehlenbacher and many other anonymous donations were made.
The Deputy Sheriff’s PBA would also like to recognize the Seneca County Sheriff’s Office Administration for their continued support of this program.
NOTE: Out of respect for privacy for the families, the PBA does not publish any photos that depict the faces of the children.
