On August 13th 2022, active and retired officers of PB&PA Unit #39 held their annual back to school shopping program. In total, 68 kids from Decatur and the surrounding Macon County area participated in the event. The kids were able to get items for the upcoming school year.
Thanks to Kohl’s and Hickory Point Mall for allowing us to use their facilities for the event. Also thanks to Maria Robertson and Dr. Rochelle Clark from DPS #61 for helping with registration and check in. And thanks to YMCA for the back packs and school supplies.
This event would not be possible without the outpouring of support from our community. We would like to thank everyone who was able to make a donation to our 2022 fundraising campaign. Our next shopping event will be in December where we will take local children shopping for Christmas gifts. Our fundraising campaign remains open and donations can be made through our Venmo account or mailed to PB&PA Unit #39 P.O. Box 2048, Decatur, IL 62524.
