Janus Developmental Services exceeds Giving Tuesday goal
Lodge President Sgt. Jamie Aloisio said
19 officers and 15 family members assisted with the event.
"The turnout has been great. Officers see it as another way to give back to the
community," he said. "It's also been great for our families to see us interact with the
public. So many shoppers have come up and thanked us for our service. We have
such a supportive community and it's wonderful that our families can see that
since they aren't with us every day." To assist the annual Shop with a Cop
program, those who would like to donate are asked to make checks payable to "NFOP
Lodge #198" and write "Shop with a Cop" in the check's memo line. Checks should be

Giving Tuesday, a day that is set aside specifically for individuals to donate to

making the total donation $21,205.
