To the Editor:
On Dec. 10, McHenry County Police Charities held its annual Shop with a Cop event. More than 200 children received police escorts to Meijer in McHenry, Walmart in Crystal Lake or Walmart in Harvard to shop for Christmas gifts, coats, boots, hats and gloves.
Afterward, everyone enjoyed breakfast with Santa while the gifts were wrapped at one of three locations: the Parks and Recreation Department in McHenry, with food donations from 31 North Banquet and Conference Center; D’Andrea Banquets in Crystal Lake; or Kelley’s Family Restaurant in Harvard.
Thank you to all who donated and volunteered to make this Christmas a little brighter.
