In 2019, over $50,000 was raised to provide more than 420 needy children, ages twelve (12) and under, with winter coats, shoes, boots and clothing. Sergeant Craig Fouts, Boone County FOP Lodge No. 110 President, said this year’s fundraising goal is $50,000. Sergeant Fouts expects even more applications for the program to come in this year. “This program is all about the philanthropic people and businesses of Boone County generously giving, to help other families of Boone County”, said Fouts. The entire fundraising effort for this program is done locally without the help of commercial groups. All of the money raised goes directly to Boone County children. Christmas with a Cop encourages a positive interaction between the children and law enforcement. Fouts added: “The program also brings with it the camaraderie of various police agencies in Boone County.” Christmas with a Cop applications for participation are now available. The completed applications should be returned to the Boone County Sheriff’s Office, Lebanon Police Department, Whitestown Metropolitan Police Department, and/or the Zionsville Police Department… Monday-Friday 8am-4pm. The completed applications must be returned no later than 4:00pm November 25th, 2020. Donations can be made to: Boone County FOP Christmas with a Cop PO Box 432 Lebanon, IN 46052.
