Cicero Police raise funds to help children purchase Christmas gifts

CICERO – Town of Cicero police hosted their annual Shop with a Cop event at the Target Store Dec. 14.

Target, 2901 S. Cicero Ave., annually donates funds to support the program, but this year, donations were also received from Exxon Mobile, based at 38th Street and Cicero Avenue, according to police officials.

“Our police officers also raised funds from their families and together we were able to raise a total of $3,000,” said Bernard Harrison, police superintendent.

Children from needy families will be given the money, Harrison said, to use to purchase gifts and toys at Target.

“We have 15 children and each child will be accompanied by a Cicero police officer who volunteers to participate their time to help the child,” Harrison said.

Each child received $200 to spend during the event.
