Holiday with Heroes event helps local kids enjoy the holidays

Iowa City Police Officers took 35 area kids shopping on Tuesday, Dec. 4, 2018, during the Holiday with Heroes event.

The annual holiday shopping trip was hosted by Target, and made possible in part by donations to the Iowa City Police Association (ICPA), including a donation by the Iowa City Masonic Lodge #4. 

The Police Association selected 35 deserving children with the assistance of Big Brothers Big Sisters, Neighborhood Centers of Johnson County, the Iowa Department of Human Services, the Iowa City Community School District, and the officers’ personal interactions with families in need in the Iowa City area. Children were paired with uniformed Officers to shop for necessity items, as well as gifts for family members and themselves. Twenty ICPD Officers and employees volunteered their time to assist with this event.

The Iowa City Police Association would like to thank all of the individuals and businesses who generously contributed to this program.
