2020 Holidays and Heroes a Success

Despite a year of cancellations, the Spokane County Sheriff’s Office managed to go forward with the annual Holidays and Heroes outreach event. It is a festive occasion when Spokane County Sheriff’s Officers take kids shopping for Christmas gifts for their families. 

This year all the COVID-19 mandates presented new difficulties, but the Spokane Sheriff’s Office worked hard with our community and local businesses to provide help to families in need during this holiday season. The Spokane County Sheriff’s Office Explorers, Spokane Valley Police, Spokane County Detention Services Officers, and Spokane County Sheriff’s Deputies did not let the many hurdles stop this year’s Holidays and Heroes. 

A yearly event in Spokane County for nearly 20 years and even longer in Kootenai County, Idaho, Holidays and Heroes is about spending time with children and families who need a little assistance to have a Merry Christmas and a joyful holiday season. This is always a fun and rewarding time for everyone involved.
