STRUTHERS, Ohio (WKBN) — It may just be the first day of Fall, but police and firefighters in Struthers have Christmas on their minds.
The two groups hosted a car show on Sunday at the Fifth Street Plaza to benefit their Shop With a Cop program.
Dozens of street rods, classics and trucks filled the parking lot to help raise money.
On Dec. 22, officers will take a large group of underprivileged children shopping, giving them each $100 to spend on themselves.
“It’s very important. Last year we helped about 67 children, we took the shopping at christmas time. We’ll probably get the same kind of response this year, so this is a nice fundraiser,” said Captain Patrick Bundy of the Struthers Police Department.
In addition to the car show, the event also included train rides, a dunk tank and an auction.
