Shop With a Cop donation

JoAnna Thompson, manager of the Forest City Shopko, recently presented a check for $1,000 to Forest City Rotary members Barb Smith and Karla Weiss and Winnebago County Chief Deputy Mike Droessler for the Shop with a Cop and Wrap with Rotary program. Pictured from left are Thompson, Smith, Weiss and Droessler. 

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.
