GLENDALE – The Glendale Fraternal Order of Police held its annual “Cops and Kids” Target shopping event on Thursday, December 11TH.
The event allowed Glendale children whose families may not have the means to fully enjoy the holidays to shop for gifts with the help of a Glendale police officer.
Donations for the event come from local companies and organizations, including Target, Submarinos (our pizza dinner host), Cabela’s, M&J Trophies, the Anthony Holly Foundation and the Glendale PD.
The Glendale FOP looks forward to this opportunity to bring joy into the lives of these children every year. This year, an estimated 55 specially-referred children were given about $115 to spend as they choose while accompanied by a police officer. They also visited with Santa, had a chance to tour SWAT police vehicles and received donated T-shirts and holiday stockings.
