Area law enforcement agencies worked together to give local children a special Christmas this year.
They raised enough money to take 32 children Christmas shopping at Fleet Farm in Waupaca.
Each child received a $100 gift certificate to buy presents for their families and a $25 certificate to buy a gift for themselves.
Children from throughout the county were selected for the Shop with Cops program, which was organized by the Waupaca County Sheriff’s Office.
Each child was accompanied by an officer as they made their way through the store. Officers from almost every community in Waupaca County, as well as state troopers and DNR wardens, participated.
When they were finished shopping, the children and officers went to the Waupaca Rec Center, where they wrapped their presents, ate pizza and visited with Santa.
