Police officers roamed the Walmart aisles Saturday with volunteers and lots of children in tow.
The first shopping day for the annual “Shop With a Cop” program went off without a hitch.
The Fraternal Order of Police Lodge No. 29, representing East Liverpool police officers, spearheaded the local program that helps make the holiday season a little more special for some of the area children. The program is in its 11th year.
“The kids are having a lot of fun, that’s for sure,” Capt. John Lane said while searching the clothing section. Lane organized this year’s shopping event.
The policemen and volunteers were having just as much fun as the kids.
“Every kids knows where the toy section is,” Lane noted.
