The Wood County Fraternal Order of Police Lodge 109 will be holding its annual Cops and Kids Event on Dec. 8.  
The Meijer Store on U.S. 20 will again be hosting this event.
Local children from Wood County are being selected to participate. These children are from families who are facing financial difficulties and could use a little help making the holiday season a little brighter.  
Police officers are paired up with children, and are given a $100 gift card. The children first must pick out a new winter jacket and boots. The remainder of the money can be spent on whatever the child has on their Christmas list.
Officers are currently selling raffle tickets for $5 and accepting donations to cover the $100 per child goal. Currently, there are about 100 children scheduled to participate.
Anyone interested in purchasing a raffle ticket or making a donation, may contact their local police department, call (419) 353-9728 or e-mail This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .
According to FOP President Dan Van Vorhis, last year police officers from every jurisdiction in the county participated .
Co-coordinators for Cops and Kids are Perrysburg Township Officer Rachel Bernhard, Northwood Police Sgt. Doug Hubaker, Haskins Police Officer Lorraine Stiefel, and Rossford Police Officer Jody Johnson.
