With lights flashing and sirens blaring, police descended on Wal-Mart in Dry Ridge on Saturday, Dec. 8.
There hadn’t been an armed robbery. No one got pushed or shoved in a shopping frenzy, but there were plenty of smiles as 20 children got to choose clothes and toys for Christmas as part of the annual Shop With A Cop program.
Money for the annual event comes from a golf scramble and donations. A few businesses either raise or donate money to help pay for a child to participate. Thrivent Lutheran’s Financial also donated $1,000.
