On December 18th, 2021, the Waynesboro Police Department, assisted by Santa Claus, hosted their annual Cops for Kids event at Dad’s Pizzeria for eleven special children in the Waynesboro area. Each child got to eat pizza with the police officers and received toys, a jacket, and a Piggly Wiggly gift card as part of the annual Cops for Kids program.
This was all made possible by the generosity of Dad’s Pizzeria and $2,812.00 in donations from the community, local businesses, citizens, City Hall staff, the Waynesboro Police Department officers, Santa (aka Roger), and the Waynesboro City Commission. Part of the donations came from proceeds paid by City Manager Hickman and all Waynesboro Police Department staff donating money to participate in No Shave November and December. The officers look forward to this program all year long.
