PERRYVILLE, MO (KFVS) - The Family, Career and Community Leaders of America (FCCLA) Club at Perryville High School is teaming up with Perryville's Ponderosa Steakhouse to bring holiday joy to needy children.
The fundraiser will be held from 3:30 to 9 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 27 at the Perryville Ponderosa.
FCCLA members will serve as waitresses and the restaurant will donate a percentage of the entrées sold and 100% of the tips to the club, which is raising money for Shop WIth A Cop.
The Shop With A Cop program provides the opportunity for more than 150 local children to shop with a law enforcement buddy at Perryville Walmart.
Each child receives a $100 gift card thanks to donations from Perry County businesses and families.
Deputy Colleen Newland of Perry County Sheriff’s Department said that service agencies and schools refer children to the Shop With A Cop program each year.
