Children at the Smithville Head Start Center were treated to bags of gifts today (Friday) thanks to the Smithville Police Department’s “Cops4Kids” program.

Police Chief Mark Collins, Mayor Jimmy Poss, and other members of the police department presented the children with the gifts. Other guests included Sean and Brad Driver and Danny Hale of “Right on Time” and local minister Donnie Kelly, who were on hand to sing Christmas songs. Dwayne Cornelius, another local minister and Chaplain of the Smithville Police Department shared the Christmas story with the children. Santa also stopped by for a visit with the kids.

Members of the Police Department participated in “No Shave November to help raise money to purchase gifts; Woodmen Life Lodge 1077 made a cash donation; and Cash Express recently held a "Fill the Police Car" event to collect gifts in support of the “Cops4Kids” program. Other local businesses also contributed.

“Each year the Smithville Police Department tries to do something around this special holiday. This year we again chose the Head Start. What we do is we collect donations and presents and we give them to the kids. They get to interact with us. Its really enjoyable for all of us to interact with the kids. This is a good event for us. Its a way we can give back to the community and these kids really appreciate it and seem to enjoy it," said Police Chief Mark Collins.
