The Marshalltown Fraternal Order of Police (F.O.P.) Lodge #2 has started its annual fundraiser, a telemarketing campaign, to help with many different programs and organizations that benefit Marshalltown and surrounding area youth.
The organization holds two "Shop with a Cop" programs each year. One program helps in-need children purchase school supplies each fall and the other helps children purchase Christmas gifts for their families during the holiday season. The organization also provides college scholarships to graduating seniors who have an interest in pursuing a career in public service.
Telephone solicitation will begin Monday for approximately five weeks. The F.O.P. would like to extend a thank you to those who have contributed to the cause and to those who will show their continued support to the youth with this fundraiser.
