Shop with Law Enforcement Event

The Macon Fraternal Order of Police (MFOP) Lodge #3 will host its annual "Shop with Law Enforcement" starting on Dec. 14.

Each year, the MFOP sponsors three Christmas "Shop with Law Enforcement" events where MFOP members take a child shopping for whatever they want for Christmas.

The program is designed for children who would otherwise not receive anything for Christmas.

According to MFOP Lodge #3 Secretary Dennis Pace, the MFOP will sponsor about 100 children in Macon at Walmart on Dec. 14, about 50 children in Perry on Dec. 15 and about 50 children in Milledgeville on Dec. 16.

The children will be allowed to spend $100 on whatever they choose in Walmart.

In previous years, the program was known as "Shop with a Cop," but has since been changed to incorporate other members of the MFOP who are not police officers.

Family to Family Food Drive : Day 7 of 13 Days of Giving

Family to Family Food Drive : Day 7 of 13 Days of Giving

 

One of the most well known holiday songs states, "It's the most wonderful time of the year," and it is for some families.  But for others this holiday season has been reduced to one simple choice - food and shelter, or gifts for their families. 

This year the First Sergeants at Robins Air Force Base have identified seventy-five military families, including approximately two-hundred children, who don't have enough resources to provide food and gifts for their families. 

You can help by donating canned goods (see list below) or make a monetary donation which will help purchase turkeys, hams, and other perishable items. 

Holiday Storytime at the Library with Santa's Elves

Storytime at the Library is scheduled to take place at 11:30 a.m.

Children will be able to hear “Who’s That Knocking on Christmas Eve?” and “Night Before Christmas” read by one of Santa’s elves.

The library is located at 1201 Washington St.
