Fifteen kids from Algoma, Luxemburg, and Kewaunee will get a little extra help shopping for Christmas Saturday. The Kewaunee County Sheriff’s Department hosts their annual Shop with a Cop program to help make the holidays brighter for area families. After a quick breakfast and a trip to Aissen Tree Farm to pick out an ornament, deputies take the kids on a $250 shopping spree to buy presents for their families before heading back to Luxemburg-Casco High School to wrap them. Deputy Rick Karman has volunteered with the event for over 10 years and says it is great to see the kids grow more comfortable with them throughout the day.
The Kewaunee County Shop with a Cop program is funded by donations from individuals and businesses throughout the area.
