KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The Kansas City Fraternal Order of Police took 24 kids out to the ballgame on Sunday where they saw the Kansas City Royals defeat the Chicago White Sox 10-3.
The kids were with Big Brothers and Big Sister, and together with their bigs, were given tickets, T-shirts and food at the game. Several officers joined the group to spend time with the kids.
“We want to be involved with our youth and show them police officers are here to help. This event was just one way to give back and everyone had a really good time.” FOP President Brad Lemon said.
The FOP also announced the formation of a new organization, the Kansas City Police Officers Memorial Foundation, which is dedicated to supporting officers and building bonds in the communities they serve.
