Student in need getting free eyeglasses

Local

One student in Ayden will be getting a new pair of glasses this holiday season.

After Ayden Police’s Shop With a Cop event this week, the manager at Walmart gave them a $150 dollar gift card to give to any kid at Ayden Middle or Ayden Elementary that couldn’t afford glasses but needed them.

Chief Stanley said, “You see these things all the time around this time of year but it never gets old. We appreciate it more than they will ever know.”

Chief Stanley also says two people came up to him and gave him more than $100 for the kids, he says that will kick start their Shop With a Cop efforts next year.
