The White County Fraternal Order of Police is accepting donations for the Cops and Kids Christmas program. The program benefits underprivileged children here in White County. The event will take place on December 21 at Walmart in Carmi. This is the 20th year of running the program.
Money collected is used to take the children on a shopping spree for clothes and gifts for Christmas. Each child gets to shop with a member of the FOP during the event. Applications can be picked up at the CPD or WCSD in Carmi or the City Hall in Norris City.
Donations can be made at the Carmi Police Department or the White County Sheriff Department. Donations can also be made at Maier Grocery in Crossville, Dollar General in Norris City and Doug's Food Mart in Norris City. Donations can also be mailed to the Fraternal Order of Police (Cops and Kids) at 108 N. Main Cross Carmi, IL 62821. All donations are greatly appreciated.
