With the Holiday Season upon us, we'd like to help spread the word about a very special gift drive throughout southeastern Wisconsin to benefit needy children.
Shielded Hearts, a local group of women in long-term committed relationships with men in law enforcement, participating local police departments and the Child Protection Center (CPC) are launching their annual “RoundUp” drive for kids in need this holiday season. Now through Dec. 16, more than 10 drives will be taking place throughout southeastern Wisconsin and will collect new toys and stuffed animals for children coming through the foster care system or who have been affected by unfortunate situations.
