MOUNT PLEASANT, SC (WCSC) -

The Mount Pleasant Police Department will participate in a fundraiser that will bring in snacks for children who cannot afford their own.

Cops and Snacks will be held Friday from 10 a.m. until 3 p.m. at Target on Long Grove Drive.

During the event, people are encouraged to purchase snacks to fill a police cruiser with.

According to a flyer posted on the Mount Pleasant Police Department's Twitter page, any unopened, individually wrapped snack item will be accepted.

The snacks will be distributed to James B. Edwards Elementary School. The school provides snacks to children who cannot afford to bring their own.

Organizers say James B. Edwards Elementary currently goes through about 1,000 snacks a month.

The police department will also be signing buddy cards for any child who comes to donate.

Mount Pleasant police say the buddy card program allows children to interact with police officers in a positive manner. During the course of speaking with the officers, children can request the officer sign his or her buddy card.  Once ten signatures are collected, the buddy cards can be redeemed at Town Hall for a prize.

For more information, contact the Mount Pleasant Police Department.
