(Hickory, Ky.) - On Thursday, December 17, 2015 the Kentucky State Police Professional Association (KSPPA) District 1conducted it's annual "Shop with a Trooper" (S.W.AT.) program. This program is designed to assist children in need during Christmas season.
Ninety-two children, their families, and over a hundred volunteers from KSP Troopers, KSP CVE Officers, KSP dispatchers, KSP family members, Mayfield City Police Department, Northside Baptist Christian School, Northside Baptist Church, and Mayfield Lions Pizza was provided to everyone courtesy of Papa John's Lone Oak store.
After dinner, the volunteers assisted the children in their shopping at the 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. Without the help of these generous individuals, Christmas would not be possible for these families.
