KALAMAZOO (WKZO) -- Officers with Kalamazoo Public Safety will join 17 children from the Kalamazoo area to shop for Christmas gifts this week.
The annual "Shop with Heroes and Helpers" event seeks to help those children purchase gifts for their families and themselves with 17-hundred dollars in donations this year. The hope is to bring some Christmas cheer to those families with a little holiday spirit during tough economic times for some families that need it most.
Officers will be shopping with children this Wednesday at 6:30 p.m. at the Target store at 5350 West Main Street. Kalamazoo Public Safety offers thanks to the Target Corporation for making the event possible.
