The Christmas season can be difficult on many families here in Central New York, and members of the Thomas Lindsey Foundation, local police officers and their friends and family, raise money all year round to give $100 gift cards to as many kids as they can, so the children can buy something for themselves or their family members.
Tom Lindsey loved children, and his colleagues know he would have loved to see the smiles on the faces of the kids and their parents. To most of them, this is the only gift any will receive during the holidays.
The Thomas M. Lindsey foundation asks area schools and community centers to give them names and addresses of children in need, and the Foundation tries to help as many as possible. If you know of a child you would like to nominate, please fill out our nomination form.
Money for the Shop with a Cop program is raised through the Brothers Forever Ride and The Thomas M. Lindsey Memorial Golf Tournament.
