🚨Santa Cops 2020 (aka Cops do the shopping)🚨
Each year, Fraternal Order of Police Battlefield Lodge 43 treats area children from all throughout Prince William County, Manassas Park, and Manassas City to a Christmas shopping spree from money that is donated by local residents and businesses of Prince William County.
Manassas Park Police were bound and determined to still participate in this worthy cause and provide for the children in our community. We weren’t able to take the kids shopping this year due to COVID-19; however, officers embarked on a journey this morning with the help of officers from the Prince William County Adult Detention Center and the Manassas Park Emergency Communications Center to shop for ten (10) children that were selected by the Manassas Park City School System.
We were able to fulfill each kid’s wish list as well as provide them winter coats, winter hats, gloves, bicycle, and either a turkey or ham of their choice.
Once the gifts were purchased and wrapped, we solicited the help of Santa Claus 🎅 to deliver them to each family.
Chief Mario Lugo would like to personally say “Thank You” to everyone that helped make this a huge success for the kids, especially the members of Battlefield Lodge 43 and of course Santa Claus🎅
