The Vandalia Police Department has completed their Shop with a Cop program for this year. And, this is the statement on the program this year from Police Chief Jeff Ray.
We would like to thank all of those that donated to the Vandalia Police Department Shop with a Cop program. A special thanks to the Land of Lincoln Credit Union. They have helped us with fund raising and also helped with the shopping. Thank you Mrs. Mesnard from the Vandalia Elementary School. She was kind enough to help with the selection process again this year. We were able to take 15 children this year. This program is funded solely on donations from our citizens and business. We received over 50 unsolicited donations. Without your support the program would not exist. We look forward to next year and our programs continued growth.
