‘Shop With Cops’ called a triumph

Economic downturn odds were against them, but Ardmore’s Fraternal Order of Police triumphed Thursday and Friday when the annual “Shop With Cops” program surpassed expectations.

“This year’s ‘Shop With Cops’ was a success,” said Officer Barry Antwine, FOP Vice President.

“The time and effort put in by the FOP members is immeasurable. It was a long, hard and stressful year trying to make sure that this program continued to be a success.”

Every year, the local FOP’s “Shop With Cops” program is aimed at making sure Christmas wishes come true for needy children who will not be served by other agencies providing holiday gifts.

Every child selected for the program receives $100, a ride in a police car, with lights flashing and sirens wailing, to a local store and the opportunity to shop with a cop.
