Back to School

Sunday morning, July 31st, police officers from across Williamson County will make going back to school for families, who are down on their luck, a little easier. Officers will spend about $20,000 on school supplies and school clothes to help prepare community youth for the upcoming school year.

The Morris Heithcock Fraternal Order of Police Lodge #41, in Franklin, will hold their annual Shop with a Cop – Back to School event at the Franklin Walmart from 7-9am. About 100 children from pre-screened families have been selected to do their back-to-school shopping with money generously donated by local residents and businesses.

“This is a special opportunity for local police officers to work with some great families this year,” said Lodge President and Franklin Police Detective Andy Green. “This is possible only through the generosity of our community, and very caring men and women who wear a badge.”
