Helping Shop with a Cop in Joplin

JOPLIN, Mo. – With Christmas fast approaching, giving and goodwill are on the minds of many 4-Staters.

On Saturday, a couple in Joplin decided to host a silent auction to help raise funds for Joplin’s Shop with a Cop program.

Officers will take children on a fun spending spree on December 4th, but there’s a lot of local kids they’re hoping to shop for this year.

Area businesses pitched in to help by providing items for the auction, all with one common goal: making Christmas merrier for four state families.

Items as the auction ranged from 25 to 500 dollars in value.
