Annual Shop-With-A-Cop Program Accepting Applications For Children

The 2013 Annual Shop-With-A-Cop Program sponsored by Fayette County Memorial Lodge #118 of the Fraternal Order of Police is now accepting applications for children wishing to participate in this program. Children must be between the ages of three and twelve to qualify for this program, must not be receiving assistance from any other program, and children's families must meet income guidelines to qualify. Only children who reside in Fayette County are eligible to participate in this program.

Individuals wishing to submit nominations for participation in this program may call (304)731-8438 to submit the name or names of children for possible participation. The answering service will take the application over the phone.

Parents or guardians of the children selected to participate in this program will receive a written notification through the mail telling them the date and time of their scheduled shopping experience at the Fayetteville Wal-Mart. As the program is to be made available to as many children as possible, parents or guardians are asked to make every effort to have their children present at the designated time.

Solicitation flyers to raise money for this annual program have already been mailed out, and a limited number of donations have already been received. The members of Fayette County Lodge #118 of the Fraternal Order of Police urge all members of the community to donate as much as possible to the cause. Telemarketing will not be employed for this program and will rely solely on this mailed solicitation to raise funds. All money raised will remain within Fayette County as opposed to sending a large portion to pay a professional fund-raising company. The amount of money received via donations dictates the number of children served by the program.
