The Peoria Police Officers Association’s annual Shop With A Cop event was celebrated drive-thru style, Dec. 11.
The event was organized by the fundraising efforts of the P.P.O.A., along with support of several community partners and the Peoria Police Department.
Shop With A Cop allows police department employees to give back to local children by providing gifts of all kinds for them and their families for the holiday season.
This year was a drive-thru version, where pre-selected families drove through an array of holiday-themed areas without ever leaving their vehicles.
Each child was asked for a list this year and officers and employees shopped for all the kids and delivered the gifts during a holiday parade.
