The program allows approximately 100 kids to shop for winter coats, boots, hats, gloves, and a toy for the upcoming holidays. Police officers will be assisting the children in picking out the gifts.
The Cedar Rapids Police Protective Charity is encouraging citizens and businesses to get involved and help police officers support our local children. Donations can be made at www.crpolicecharity.com. There is also a fundraiser at Chipotle Mexican Grill, 2360 Edgewood Road SW, on Wednesday, Nov. 16 between 5 and 8 pm. Half of all the proceeds will be donated to the Cedar Rapids Police Protective Charity. Police officers, Police Volunteer Corps, and Police Explorers will be in attendance.
