Sunday is Mother's Day but some children can't afford to buy their mothers a gift. So the Police Athletic League and 'Dress Barn' are doing something about that. Several children received $50 gift cards to spend on presents for their mothers Saturday as part of the 'To Mom with Love' program.
"The police athletic league, we have, it is for educational sports activities, but the other thing that we do is try to find ways to give back and obviously, the mothers, the fathers that are involved in the program, to be supportive, and this is a great way to let these kids show some appreciation to them, so we are so glad to be a part of much an opportunity," says Officer Connie Rayford with the Police Athletic League.
This is based on the same idea as 'Shop with a Cop' that happens around Christmas.
