Christmas Prayers with a Cop

 

 

Huntsville, Alabama (December 13, 2012) The local Fraternal Order of Police T.L. Blakemore Lodge #6, Christian radio station WAY-FM 88.1, and Target have teamed up this holiday season to assist a group of local families in the area whose children may be without a Christmas due to financial hardships.  The program is called Christmas Prayers with a Cop and has been in place for 10 years.  The FOP, through contributions by citizens and businesses across Madison County, provides the funds needed for the program.  WAY-FM finds the families that are most in need.  Target provides the location for shopping and designates an area where the kids can gather for snacks and games while the parents shop.  FOP members (including Huntsville Police Officers and Madison County Deputies) and WAY-FM will be meeting the families at Target on Carl T. Jones Thursday, December 13th, at 5:30 pm to share in the joy of the season.
