We are organizing our annual Cops & Kids Christmas event. With help from Reza’s Auto Repair (Crest Hill) and Romeoville Toyota, we expect this event to benefit up to 100 kids. If your family or one you know has experienced a traumatic event over the past year or will have financial difficulty providing gifts for the children, we would like to help make Christmas special this year. Please contact us via email at contact@RomeovilleFOP.org with family contact information (name, phone number, and children’s names and ages). MERRY CHRISTMAS!
This event has a limited number of available openings. We must be notified by Monday, November 16th to ensure we have enough time to make this event successful for the kids! Eligibility is limited to children under 18-years-old residing in Romeoville or attending Romeoville schools.
