New to this year’s event, Exxon Mobile based at 38th Street and Cicero, have also donated funds to support the program, according to Police chief Bernard Harrison.

“Our police officers also raised funds from their families and together we were able to raise a total of $3,000,” Harrison said.

These funds will be given to children in need, in order to buy toys and gifts for Christmas, Harrison said.

“We have 15 children and each child will be accompanied by a Cicero Police Officer who volunteers to participate on their time to help the child,” Harrison said.

Each child will receive $200 to spend during the annual Needy Christmas Fund event.
