Recently the Deschutes County Sheriff's Office had the pleasure of disbursing over $20,000 in merchandise to some local nonprofits.

 

Captain Shane Nelson with DCS says Wal-Mart contacted them asking if they could help distribute 20 pallets of unused merchandise in the community after completion of their new supercenter.

 

"So this is a one time opportunity. The Wal-Mart store really stepped up to help their community.  And trusted our office to get in touch with community resources and get these unused products out there, so that we could give those less fortunate a hand up and help them out."

 

Nelson says Wal-Mart worked through the sheriff's office because of their relationship with their "Shop with a Cop" program.

 

Over 25 charities received a portion of the merchandise that includes clothing, games, shoes and toys.

Most organizations are asking for cash, rather than supplies, so they can route help to where it’s needed most more quickly. Here are some of the largest groups with campaigns underway:
