State Troopers from the Kentucky State Police Post 5 in Campbellsburg spent a day with children from the counties of Oldham, Henry, Trimble, Carroll, Gallatin, and Owen during Post 5’s annual ‘Shop with a Trooper’ program last week. KSP’s  ‘Shop with a Trooper’ program is an initiative providing Troopers an opportunity to impact the lives of children in need during holiday season, while providing children a chance to have positive interaction with State Troopers.

Troopers headed out in local communities to pick-up 30 area children identified in need. The children were taken to Post 5 located in Campbellsburg for a pancake breakfast with Santa Claus.  

Following breakfast, the children were taken by Troopers for a day of shopping at Wal-Mart in LaGrange. Children were able to enjoy the company of State Troopers as they shopped for toys to fulfill their wish lists, while also getting much needed clothing. After filling their carts at Wal-Mart, the children returned to Post 5 for a lunch provided by the LaGrange Wal-Mart.  

Children were returned to their homes that afternoon with their new gifts and smiling faces.
