Events & Festivals
The St. Charles Police Patrolman’s Association (Metropolitan Alliance of Police Chapter 27) hosted its second “Shop with a Cop” event last month at the St. Charles Super Target. 20 officers came out to shop with 10 children whose families are being assisted by Lazarus House. Each child received $250 to spend. The officers helped the children shop, check out, wrap, and then just spent time with them. The holidays certainly were a little brighter for these families thanks to the kindness and generosity of our officers.
