WATCH: Macon County “Shop with a Sheriff” Brings Holiday Joy

December 11, 2019 – More than 40 area children got the chance to get some Christmas shopping done Wednesday night with helping hands and plenty of generosity from members of law enforcement. During the Macon County Shop with a Sheriff event at the Target store in Mound Center, kids could fill carts with up to $100 worth of toys and gifts with assistance from Sheriff’s Office personnel. The F.O.P. raises money for the event throughout the year, with citizen and business donations and the organization’s annual golf outing. Last year the event raised $17,000. Noting that “all the money goes right back to the community,” Flannery admitted that the $100 spending limit for the night wasn’t exactly a hard figure. About 30 members of law enforcement were on hand to help the young shoppers, including officers from the correctional division, court security and animal control.
