When Officer Sholar left the residence he coordinated with other officers to make sure this family would be able to celebrate
Christmas the right way.

Officer Sholar along with many other contributors were able to raise enough money through donations to replace the gifts that were stolen and provide a Christmas meal that was delivered by him and his shift this morning.
