Christmas in July: Fraternal Order of Police, local officers to spend $20k on Williamson Kids at “Shop with a Cop,” Sunday in Franklin

12-12-2014 3-55-02 PMSunday morning, police officers from across Williamson County will make going back to school for families who are down on their luck a little easier. Officers will spend about $20,000.00 on school supplies and school clothes to help prepare community youth for the upcoming school year.

The Morris Heithcock Fraternal Order of Police Lodge #41, in Franklin, will hold their annual Shop with a Cop – Back to School event at the Franklin Walmart from 7-9am. About 100 children from pre-screened families have been selected to do their back-to-school shopping with money generously donated by local residents and businesses.

“This is a special opportunity for local police officers to work with some great families this year,” said Lodge President and Franklin Police Detective Andy Green. “This is possible only through the generosity of our community, and very caring men and women who wear a badge.”

Media interested in covering this event are approved, by Walmart, to be on the property and inside the store located at 3600 Mallory Lane, Franklin, TN, Sunday morning.
