Dear Friend of the Beardstown Police Department:
It is once again that time of the year, and the Beardstown Police Department “Shop With A Cop” program is beginning work to make a brighter holiday season for many local children who need our support.
The Beardstown Police Department would like to extend its thanks for your generous contributions to the 2012 campaign. Because of your wonderful support and the support of the community we were able to provide for many more children in need. It was once again a great success.
For many years now, this program has helped make Christmas a little more joyful for many local children. The “Shop With A Cop” program provides clothing, shoes, hats and glove and one nice toy for each child in need. Unfortunately, the list of children continues to grow and with your support we hope we will be able to meet that need.
The Beardstown Police Department conducts this campaign itself, so that 100 percent of your donation will go to benefit a local child in need. The shopping is also done locally so your dollars stay in the community.
With this letter we are once again asking for your help. If you would like to contribute, please make your donation in person at the Police Department or by mail to:
Shop With A Cop
c/o Beardstown Police Department
Post Office Box 467
Beardstown, IL 62618
Anyone wishing to make a contribution may give it directly to any officer or call the Beardstown Police Department at 323-3131 or 491-0055 and an officer will be more than happy to stop by and pick up your donation. You may also drop off your donation at Discount Smoke Shop at 310 State Street.
It is our hope to have all the donations received by December 14. If you have any questions regarding the “Shop With A Cop” program or if you would like to join us as a volunteer, please call our office.
We thank you for your support, and hope you will again join us in this year’s effort to brighter the Holiday Season for many area children.
