The Stanford FOP Shop with a Cop event was held Saturday, Dec. 10 at Walmart. More than 40 children were paired with a local police officer and taken through the store to pick out Christmas presents.
Local residents George and Priscilla Miller were also recognized during the event for the numerous Boneyville benefit rides they have organized to help raise money for the Shop with a Cop event each year. Thanks to the Millers, the Boneyville rides have raised more than $6,000 for the local Christmas event. The Miller’s fundraiser last summer helped the Stanford FOP treat kids to $100 each worth of presents this year as well as winter coats.
Santa Claus and Neal James, A.K.A “The Banjo Man” also made appearances at Walmart Saturday, stopping to pose for pictures with several children.
