If you saw a large number of Rogers Police at the Rogers Target before Christmas, they weren’t there for extra holiday security. For two days in a row, Rogers police officers took numerous kids Christmas shopping. The recipients were children in need. “The credit goes beyond me to Target and my staff who really opened their wallets and hearts to these families who were really going through tough times,” said Chief Jeff Beahen, above. The chief added that two of the kids lost their dad last month to a fatal illness, one was living in a homeless shelter, and two more lost their home in a fire.
