CLEARWATER – Clearwater police went shopping for less fortunate children around the Clearwater area on Dec. 13.

Officers, detectives and civilian personnel joined O’Neal and Nedra Larkin at Super Target at the Clearwater Mall for the pre-holiday shopping spree that will benefit hundreds of children, according to a press release.

The group bought footballs, dolls, basketballs, racecars, and bicycles among other items. The holiday loot filled more than a dozen shopping carts.

The Larkins have been helping the community for more than 12 years. The Clearwater Police Department assists them, in conjunction with Cops for the Cause, the Fraternal Order of Police and Clearwater Neighborhood Housing Inc. Target also provided a donation to the cause.

During checkout, two customers, who happened to be there doing their own shopping, also donated when they saw what was going on. One person gave $20, and the other gave $10, so that even more children can receive gifts this holiday season.

Residents can continue to drop off unwrapped gifts at the Clearwater Police Headquarters at 645 Pierce Street through Friday, Dec. 20. The gifts will be handed out Sunday, Dec. 22.
