Shop With A Cop A Success
The Chillicothe Kiwanis Club’s annual Shop with a Cop was Saturday morning at a local retailer. This annual event helps families in the holiday season. The nearly 75 children involved were paired with a local officer, Kiwanis Club Member, Key Club Member and this year members of the Chillicothe FFA and shop for items for their family and themselves. This year participants included Chillicothe Kiwanis members, the Chillicothe MO Police Department, Livingston County Sheriff’s Office, Homeland Security, Missouri Highway Patrol, employees from the local store, CHS Key Club and Chillicothe FFA chapter.
Family members who were waiting for the children to complete the shopping said they really appreciated the opportunity for their child to participate and that Christmas could have been much different this year.
Funding for the event was raised by local organizations including the Chillicothe Police Department and through grants provided by Wal-Mart.
