Hometown Hero

LOWER PAXTON TOWNSHIP, Pa. (WHTM) — You can be a hometown hero by making Christmas wishes come true.

Lower Paxton Township is holding its Shop with First Responders event with students in the school district. Principals select the children who will participate. Police, Fire, and EMS shop with the kids. COVID canceled the gathering last year. This year’s event will be held with Dick’s Sporting Goods. Organizers are hoping you will make a cash donation to the event.

“We love this type of event where we get to engage with the community members also the other first responders and partner up with the kids and just have a good time shopping we wrap up the gifts with them and we usually have some treats and things like that,” Corporal Autumn Lupey said.
