FOREST CITY | Shopko made its annual $1,000 contribution on Nov. 27 to the Shop With a Cop and Wrap With Rotary event in Forest City.
The $1,000 went toward gifts that youth from Forest City, Lake Mills, and Buffalo Center purchased for family members on Dec. 2 at the Forest City Shopko.
The Shop With a Cop program includes representatives from the Winnebago County Sheriff's Office and the police departments from Forest City, Lake Mills and Buffalo Center.
Youth in need of this service are identified through the schools. The cops then take the kids shopping.
That same day the youth take their gifts to TSB Community Room and get help wrapping them from Rotary members.
Rotary donates the gift wrap, as well as the pizza and refreshments for the kids.
