DeKALB COUNTY, Ala. — RAINSVILLE, Ala. — As the Christmas season approaches, several “heroes” joined forces to help those who are less fortunate.
Southern Torch would like to recognize Shop with a Cop, a local collaboration between the Rainsville Police Department and Mycah Swift. This year will be the third annual event with the goal of helping over 100 children.
Swift, an Ider native, had a vision of helping other children have joy at this time of year as well. Swift took this idea for “Shop with a Cop” to Chief Kevin Smith of the Rainsville Police Department and made it not just a reality, but a tradition.
At this time of year, it is important for us to stow away all of the bad headlines from across the globe and come together.
We are all glad that these people would take the time to make a difference.
