Deputies take "Back To School" shopping trip to Walmart

Posted: Updated:

The Pitt County Sheriff's Office went to Walmart and dropped a lot of cash today.

The department received a $1,000 grant to buy summer campers much needed school supplies like book bags and notebooks.

Wednesday is the last day of camp for 30 Pitt County kids and the deputies who've worked with them say it's been a great summer.

"It's just building that relationship and getting to the kids while they are young and letting them know that law enforcement is their friend and we are here to help them," said LT. Kip Gaskins, Pitt County Sheriff's Office. "They can come to us at anytime time with any problem they may have and we are hoping that goes over into adulthood."
