Cops for Kids holiday party offers opportunity to give

Lakeland, FL - The Lakeland Police Department is hosting a holiday party tonight, Dec. 16, in support of their annual Cops for Kids program, which helps local families in need. Generous community members have made the event a success in the past, and the city is requesting Christmas gift donations from the community this year, so children between the ages of 0 to 12 will have toys this year.

The event is scheduled for 5:00 p.m. - 8:00 p.m. at the Lakeland Police Station. Santa will be at the party and the children will also receive a holiday meal donated and catered by the Texas Cattle Company in addition to a gift. Police are expecting
approximately 386 children to attend the party this year.
