This afternoon Niles FOP Lodge 27 hosted 15 children and their families for a Shop with a Cop event. Each child was accompanied by an NPD Officer and given a Target gift card to buy whatever they wished for Christmas. Half of the families were chosen by Niles Community Services and the other half were children of armed forces veterens that were referred by American Legion Post 106. This event was made possible by a generous donation to the FOP by Father Lavelle and his parishioners at Our Lady of Mount Church in Niles. Pictured left to right are Ptl. Ifft, Ptl. Roberts, Ptl. Greene, Ptl. Bayless, Rocco Bowell of American Legion Post 106, Ptl. Helmick, Ptl. Townley, and Father Lavelle. Not pictured are Ptl. Brady, Capt. Miketa, Lt. Adkins, Lt. Cox, Capt. Villecco, and Chief Holland who also volunteered at the event. Thanks to Niles Target and their Starbucks Cafe (who made cake pops for the kids). Thank you to everyone that made this event possible and Merry Christmas.
