The Okeechobee Fraternal Order of Police, Lodge 69 is proud to announce the success of our
2nd annual “Shop with a Cop” event. The 'Shop with a Cop' event was created to provide
a Christmas experience for in need children who, because of financial troubles, would not
experience Christmas or receive gifts this year. As an added benefit, the event also
creates a positive interaction between the children and local law enforcement.
Each child received a shopping spree (up to $100.00) at the Okeechobee Super Wal-mart and
also had a uniformed officer from the Lodge assisting them in the shopping experience.
Okeechobee FOP is proud of the fact that all monies raised go directly back into our local community.
This year, thanks to our generous community and hard working membership, we took 67 “in need”
children Christmas shopping. The event was held @ the Okeechobee Super Wal-mart on Saturday
December 18, 2010. The Okeechobee FOP would like to thank the management of Wal-Mart for
their overwhelming support of this event.
