Volunteers prepared gifts for nearly 100 families in St. Clair Shores through Cops for Kids.
A team of volunteers which included Scouts, students and members of the community gathered Saturday morning at Assumption Cultural Center to wrap presents and prepare gift packages for Cops for Kids.

Nearly 100 families, and 300 children, from across St. Clair Shores received the Christmas gifts from Cops for Kids. 

But before the families arrived, more than 65 first-time and long-time volunteers braved the first snowfall of the season to prepare the gift packages.

"Nothing is going to let us get our Christmas spirit down," said Audrey Springfield, who has volunteered for nine years wrapping gifts and brings family friend Sophie Moffitt with her to help.

It took just over two hours, and about 470 rolls of paper, to prepare the gifts for the recipients.

In addition to receiving toys and gift cards, members of the community also got a bag of freshly baked cookies from volunteers from the No Name Car Club.

"We like to give back," said an emotional Mary Snyder, as she received thanks from Cops for Kids president Kevin Kimm.
