The LCSO,Build an Ark, Family Connections, R-Ranch and Walmart have partnered together to provide the community a huge Easter Egg Hunt in the Spring. All kids up to age 13 are encouraged to participate.
Shop with a Cop
Every year, we partner with Walmart and Family Connections to provide 50 children of the community with $200 Wal-mart gift cards for Christmas. Lumpkin County Family Connection identifies students in need, and then the children are paired with an officer, or in the case of a female student, an officer and his wife, to shop around Wal-mart for themselves as well as their family members. $100 goes toward clothing and miscellaneous items, and $100 is used for toys.
The Saturday before Thanksgiving , the LCSO holds its annual turkey shoot where people of all ages can come out and learn about gun safety and skeet shooting. Donations collected at this event help fund the Junior Law Enforcement Academy as well as the Citizen's Law Enforcement Academy.
