I love to bring the children that we are working on together with the people in their community. Joshua from Camden, NY was invited to the Sheriff’s Department and will be sworn in as a “Deputy for the Day” and also will get to meet one of the Circuit Court Judges and sit in during court. Isn’t that exciting? I can’t wait to hear all about it!
You can’t believe how excited these kids get when they are allowed to participate with law enforcement officers and other city officials. You know what’s even better? This isn’t the first time one of our wish kids gets to meet their local officials. We’ve actually had things like this happen before and to hear the stories when it’s all over…it’s just amazing! The officers love it, the deputies love it and the kids especially love it! It’s a win-win situation for all. No one walks away untouched by the experiences, including me. 🙂
