The Vandalia Police Department will look to help out some needy children in the community again this Christmas season. The VPD will partner again this year with Land of Lincoln Credit Union for their 2nd annual Shop with a Cop program. Vandalia Police Chief Jeff Ray says they were able to help 11 Vandalia area children have a better Christmas last year.
And, Chief Ray says it was a great feeling to help out the kids and see the big smiles.
The Vandalia Police Department will be raising money during this month for the program. As Chief Ray mentioned, some officers will make a donation to participate in “No Shave November.” For any individual who would like to make a donation, donations are being accepted at both the Vandalia Police Department and at Land of Lincoln Credit Union in Vandalia.
