Carroll County Times Editorial: Thumbs up for Troopers Caring for Kids

Carroll County Times Editorial: Thumbs up for Troopers Caring for Kids 

December 25, 2016

Thumbs up: More than 100 children from about 40 families visited with Santa and received gifts during the Troopers of Carroll County Caring for Kids's Christmas for Kids event, on Dec. 20. Tina Becker, a retired Maryland State Trooper who has been organizing the event for the past 19 years, said the group received children's wish lists from Christian charity The Shepherd's Staff. The group also partnered with Westminster's Texas Roadhouse to set up a candy cane tree that allowed the restaurants' patrons to fulfill the lists. Becker said the group supplemented some of the lists and also gave away four bicycles. Later in the day, Santa visited the Sykesville Town House during the town's first Toy-Palooza. Sponsored by members of the Sykesville Main Street Association, 14 children received at least three presents from their Salvation Army wish lists. Sykesville Main Street merchants and IMPAQ International raised nearly $4,000 to fulfill the children's wish lists.
