Amarillo, Texas (KFDA) – Walmart today donated a $5,000 check to Bridge Children’s Advocacy Center and Cal Farley’s Boys Ranch.
The leaders of both nonprofits are at 804 Quail Creek Dr., the location of the bridge.
The funds will go towards new video recording equipment for forensic interviews with children.
Randall County Criminal District Attorney Richard Love explained how the device could better help children facing difficult situations.
“These kids have already had terrible things happen,” Love said. “The Bridge gives them a kid-friendly place. They can videotape the interviews, so we benefit from that.”
Love says using recording equipment will allow children to review interviews before court, especially since some trials take place a year or two after the incident.
“They don’t have to go to the police station, they don’t have to go to the CPS. They don’t have to be in a police station kind of environment. That’s what happened to them,” said Love.
