Holiday Charitable Event Connects Sparta, TN, Area Children in Need with Local Police Officers for a Free Holiday Shopping Trip
NASHVILLE, TN, and SPARTA, TN, December 19, 2019 – CUMULUS MEDIA announces that 95.5 NASH Icon/WSM-FM morning radio personality Marty McFly’s charity, “Hometown Strong”, partnered with the Sparta YMCA and the Sparta Police Department for “Shop With a Cop”, which connected Sparta area children in need with local police officers for a free holiday shopping trip on Saturday, December 14, 2019. Officers donated their time to be personal shoppers and to offer a positive experience to the kids and their families.
“Shop With a Cop” was funded by local sponsors and by Marty McFly’s Blue Light Ride. Marty McFly’s Blue Light Ride was a police-led motorcycle ride held in Sparta on October 19th. The next ride will take place next spring. Marty is planning to expand the Blue Light Ride to three cities in Middle Tennessee in 2020, and to launch “Shop With a Cop” in those cities.
McFly said: “Spending a day with police officers in a hometown like Sparta really is a heartwarming experience. People were stopping and thanking the officers for what they do, and the kids they shopped with drew pictures and made the officers thank you cards. This is what top-level community law enforcement looks like, and it’s the type of story that needs more attention.“
