The Smithville Police Department’s Cops4Kids program culminated Friday morning at the Smithville L B J & C Headstart after a season of raising funds, getting gifts, donations from DeKalb residents and fundraisers like the PD’s No Shave November, Cash Express’ Fill the Cop Car and Woodmen Life program. Starting out with a song by the group Right on Time’s Donnie Kelly, Sean Driver, Danny Hale and Brad Driver, officers from the SPD told the story of Jesus’ birth and finally Santa Claus gave out gifts to a delighted student body. Dwayne Cornelius, another local minister and chaplain of the Smithville Police Department, shared the Christmas story with the children.
