Members of the Allentown Police Department helped brighten the holidays for 13 city youth and their families.
Fifteen Allentown police officers escorted the children, ages 4-to-16, from the Sixth Street Shelter to Target yesterday for “Shop with a Cop.” The children were each given $200 to spend. They were paired-up with a police officer and Target volunteers as they shopped for themselves and members of their families.
Funds for “Shop with a Cop” were contributed during the department’s “No Shave November” fundraiser.
The children were treated to lunch by FOP Lodge #10.
