Christmas to Remember

The Lake County Police Association Local 72 is pleased once again sponsor “A Christmas to Remember/ Shop with a Cop” this Holiday Season. The entire membership of the union looks forward to this annual event. In past years, we have been able to shop with over 100 children on this special day. “A Christmas to Remember /Shop with a Cop” does so much more than just give a toy to a needy child—The day provides an opportunity for kids to get to know police officers in a positive way, and in a way that impacts the entire family. Names of needy families are submitted by local schools, with children ranging from ages 5 to 16 years old. Kids are paired with a member of our Police Union and are taken shopping at Meijer in Merrillville, which helps by giving significant discounts on the purchases.

In addition to giving the kids a positive experience with a member of law enforcement, we try to raise enough money to allocate around $100 for each child. Each child can pick out a toy in the $20-$40 dollar range with the remainder being spent in necessities such as warm clothing, coats, and boots. Sometime kids opt to buy or toy or necessities for sibling. The day finishes with a donated meal from Outback Steak House for the kids and their families. Our Local 72 members get the honor of serving the food. Donations may be sent to LCPA #72, PO BOX 543, Crown Point IN 46307. On behalf of Local #72 members and all the struggling families in this area, we thank you in advance.
