Kentucky State Police’s ‘Shop with a Trooper’ helps 92 kids
92 children in Kentucky State Police’s District 1 participated in the annual "Shop with a Trooper" (SWAT) program.
The program is designed to help give to children in need during the Christmas season. More than 100 volunteers including troopers dispatchers and KSP family members and the Mayfield police participated in the program.
Northside Baptist Christian School, Northside Baptist Church, and Mayfield Lions Club also helped coordinate the event. After dinner, the volunteers took the children shopping at Wal-Mart in Mayfield. Their shopping lists consisted of several items including coats, pants, shirts, shoes, hats, gloves, and toys.
KSPPA District 1 would like to thank all private and corporate donors which made the event possible.
