Fundraiser light display set

GREENFIELD – Greenfield resident Terry Turner will once again light his home up Saturday to collect money for needy kids.

Turner strings thousands of Christmas lights around his house at 1112 E. McClarnon Drive, creating a light show set to music. For one weekend in December, the show turns into a fundraiser for the Hancock County Sheriff’s Department’s Shop with a Deputy program.

From 6 to 10 p.m. Saturday, Turner is inviting Hancock County families to visit his neighborhood to see the lights, enjoy the music and donate their spare change to the cause.

Local police will be on hand to meet with families, and Santa will pass out candy canes.

Proceeds will be given to the Shop With a Deputy program, which provides presents to underprivileged local children at Christmastime.

Donations such as Turner’s help the department to increase the amount of money it spends on each child during the Christmas shopping spree.

This year, the department took 30 kids shopping at Walmart. Each got to spend $300 on clothes, shoes, winter coats and toys.
