This Sunday, December 10th, approximately 75 kids from Henrico and New Kent Counties who are in need will meet at the Glen Allen Community Center and have breakfast with law enforcement officers from both jurisdictions before heading to a local Walmart to do some Christmas shopping.
Around 9:00 AM, these police officers and kids will travel to the Walmart located at 7901 Brook Road to begin their shopping excursion. Each child will be paired up with a law enforcement officer.
A set amount of money will be allocated for each child. Half of the money must be devoted to clothing and other essential items. The rest of the money will be used by the child to purchase toys, games, and books of their choosing.
The children participating in this program were recommended to the FOP Lodge #4 by school counselors from various Henrico and New Kent elementary and middle schools.
It’s all an effort to give kids in the area a brighter holiday season.
