Over a 24-hour period, the members of the Johnson County Fraternal Order of Police will experience the busiest time of their year.
Thousands of canned goods, boxes of pasta and bags of dried beans need to be sorted into piles and divided into 225 food baskets for the Good Cheer Fund. Pounds of ham, milk and eggs have to be unloaded and added to each delivery.
Then, the next morning, each box will be delivered to the homes of needy families in the Greenwood and Center Grove areas. And at some point, most of the members will take part in the annual Shop with a Cop event, too.
