Five Star Indy Auto is supporting the Noblesville Fraternal Order of Police in preparation for the holiday season.
The FOP’s annual Shop With a Cop Program will return for its 19th year this December to benefit underprivileged children in the Noblesville and Noblesville Township area, and Five Star Indy Auto has set up a program to ensure another successful year.
Throughout the month of June, Five Star Indy Auto, 1150 South St., donated $100 from every vehicle sold to the Shop With a Cop program.
“We appreciate the support and encourage anyone who is in the market for a new vehicle to give them a look,” said Noblesville Police Dept. Capt. Jon Williams, who has coordinated the Shop With a Cop program since its inception.
FOP Lodge No. 198 holds its annual program in December, providing any children ranging from infants to 16 years old with warm clothing to help them get through the winter months.
Participants come from a holiday assistance list given to the Noblesville FOP by the Good Samaritan Network or from police officer’s recommendations.
“It’s an opportunity to see in real time a positive impact in the community – even if it is just one or two children,” Williams said. “All of the officers have been called to negative situations. We like to think as police officers that in the larger scheme, we are making the world a better place. For this one- to two-hour timeframe, you are making a difference that lasts a lot longer than this singular event.”
