Spokane County Sheriff’s Office Explorers and Sheriff’s Deputies will be in the parking lot of Barney’s Harvest Foods, collecting donations to make Christmas wishes for local families come true.

Holidays & Heroes is an annual program where Spokane County Sheriff’s Office Explorers, Spokane County Sheriff’s Office Deputies, Spokane Valley Deputies, and Spokane County Detention Services Officers join together to help local families in need. 

Through our local schools, we identify families needing help during Christmas and over the Holidays.  Once identified, the child will be picked up by a Deputy/Officer in uniform in a patrol car and brought shopping in small groups.  

The smaller groups drive throughout the morning and early afternoon to Walmart on E. Broadway Avenue to shop for presents (clothing & toys) for the family.  A special shopper will keep an eye out for gifts for the child.  Small presents are purchased for family members, with the shopping emphasis focused on the child and their siblings.

After shopping, the presents and food boxes, full of all the necessities to make a wonderful and warm holiday meal and more, will be loaded into the patrol cars and taken, with a hopefully smiling child, back to their family.

With the community's help, local business/credit unions, and other donations, along with the Spokane County Deputy Sheriff’s Association, we provide food, gifts, and toys for approximately 30 local families.

Please stop by Barney’s Harvest Food this Saturday, November 18, 2023, from 8:00 am to 4:00 pm, and help us help those in need in our community.

Our Holidays and Heroes partners in Kootenai County (law enforcement, fire personnel, and first responders) are still working to help N. Idaho children and families in need.   (Coeur d’Alene Police Department, Coeur d’Alene Tribal Police, Idaho State Police, Kootenai County Fire & Rescue, Kootenai County Sheriff’s Office, Life Flight Network, Post Falls Police Department, Rathdrum Police Department, Spirit Lake Police Department, Spokane County Sheriff’s Department, Probation & Parole, and others.)
