MANSFIELD, OH- This Sunday was the 21st annual 'Kops n Kids' program, hosted by Walmart on Possum Run Road.

Every year, the Fraternal Order of Police Lodge #32 conducts this program in order to provide children in need with new clothes for school. The cost of the clothing is paid for by Lodge #32 with donations raised through a 5-week fundraising program.

Children in need are invited to attend through Kinship Care. Each child who attends receives a voucher for anywhere from $100 to $150, depending on age, to be used on any clothing, shoes, or coats they need.

Over 100 children participated in the program this Sunday.

Lodge #32 volunteers were there helping out as well as several Walmart associates.
