The Fraternal Order of Police Wood Capitol Lodge 138 annual Cops and Kids event is set for Wednesday beginning at 10 am at the Jasper Walmart Store. Officers from all of Dubois County’s law enforcement and corrections agencies as well as some from surrounding counties will take 60 to 65 children shopping at the Walmart Super-center.

Walmart is a financial partner in this project, along with other donors throughout the community. When shopping is complete, the officers will form a parade of police cars, complete with lights and sirens, from Walmart to the Jasper Moose Family Center.

The children will ride on buses. Lunch is donated by The Jasper Moose for the officers, children and families. Children who participate are from the Head Start program. The FOP also receives requests for assistance from families not enrolled in the Head Start program.
