The Culpeper Police Department is partnering with The Lollipop Station, a toy store located on East Davis Street in Culpeper, to help raise funds for the Special Olympics Virginia.
The fundraising event is called â??Thatâ??s A Wrap,â? where police officers from the Culpeper Police Department will volunteer their time and wrap your holiday gifts in uniform for a charitable donation to the Special Olympics Virginia.
â??Thatâ??s A Wrapâ? will be held on Saturday, Nov. 29th from 11 a.m. â?? 4 p.m. at the Lollipop Station at 179 East Davis Street in Culpeper. The event will coincide with Small Business Saturday in downtown Culpeper.
All gifts, no matter where they are purchased from, will be wrapped for you. It doesnâ??t matter if they are purchased from a large corporate retail store or a small retail store, a police officer will wrap it for you.
â??We want everyone to come down to The Lollipop Station this Saturday with all of your holiday gifts and have the men and women of the Culpeper Police Department wrap them all for you for such a great cause,â? says Chief Chris R. Jenkins.
This is not the first time the Culpeper Police Department has held a fundraising event for the Special Olympics Virginia. Earlier this year, the Culpeper Police Department partnered with Glory Days for â??Tip A Copâ? where police officers served food and drinks to patrons. All tips the police officers collected from patrons went directly to Special Olympics Virginia, which was more than $2,000.
â??What a wonderful way to donate to such a great cause as the Special Olympics Virginia, while also getting your holiday presents wrapped at the same time. We are honored to host such a wonderful event with the Culpeper Police Department,â? says Lollipop Station owner Faith Gil.
