FOP charity program accepting donations

The 15th annual Shop with a Cop program, led by the Noblesville Fraternal Order of Police Lodge No. 198, has begun fundraising efforts for this year’s event. This program provides needy children in Noblesville and Noblesville Township with warm clothing to help them get through the winter months. Because the event is normally held on the first Saturday of each December, each child is given the opportunity to select a toy as well. This year, more than 70 children will be participating in the program. Those who would like to donate are asked to make checks payable to NFOP Lodge #198 and mail to: Shop With A Cop; Noblesville FOP 198; P.O. Box 2013; Noblesville, IN 46061-2013. Please note that donations to this program are tax deductible as a charitable contribution and 100 percent of the money raised goes toward supporting this program
