Hopkinsville-Christian County Crime Stoppers continues give out reward money at a faster pace than it is bringing in donations and is using the always popular “wishing well” to bring in money through change donations.
The wells are fun for children because they can watch a coin spiral down into the bottom of the well for several seconds and they also learn about the importance of giving to a good cause.
Crime Stoppers Coordinator Paul Ray says even the smallest donations are critical in these tough economic times.
Officer Ray says every penny received goes to giving rewards to anonymous tipsters who help put wanted fugitives in jail.
The wishing well will be in the front lobby our WHOP studios on Dink Embry’s Buttermilk Road for the next few days, with everyone welcome to stop by and donate any change they can spare to Crime Stoppers.
