Cops and Kids Back to School event provides shoes, supplies for local children

Backpacks? Check. Pencils? Check. New shoes for school? Check.

Items such as these are put on lists for thousands of families as they get ready to go back to school. On Wednesday night, the Gwinnett County chapter of the Fraternal Order of Police provided more than 100 children with those supplies during their annual Cops and Kids back to school event at the Shoe Carnival in Lawrenceville.
