Shop with Law Enforcement Event

The Macon Fraternal Order of Police (MFOP) Lodge #3 will host its annual "Shop with Law Enforcement" starting on Dec. 14.

Each year, the MFOP sponsors three Christmas "Shop with Law Enforcement" events where MFOP members take a child shopping for whatever they want for Christmas.

The program is designed for children who would otherwise not receive anything for Christmas.

According to MFOP Lodge #3 Secretary Dennis Pace, the MFOP will sponsor about 100 children in Macon at Walmart on Dec. 14, about 50 children in Perry on Dec. 15 and about 50 children in Milledgeville on Dec. 16.

The children will be allowed to spend $100 on whatever they choose in Walmart.

In previous years, the program was known as "Shop with a Cop," but has since been changed to incorporate other members of the MFOP who are not police officers.

MFOP Lodge #3 members include Macon Police and retired Officers, Bibb Sheriff Department both active and retired, Byron Police Department, Monroe County Officers, GBI agents and retired FBI agents. Lodge #3 also has some Macon Fire Department Officers and several out of State Officers, Pace says.

For the event, children are chosen from Bibb, Crawford, Monroe, Baldwin and Peach counties.
