SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (WCIA) — The idea?
Improve police-child relationships, one juice box at a time.
That was what drove the Springfield Police Department to kick off a juice box fundraiser earlier this summer.
Recently, one nine-year-old girl decided that she would help that mission out as well.
Nevaeh, the daughter of residents Kristin and Jen Wanless, put her birthday money toward making a donation that would further the cause: She purchased 16 cartons, meaning her money went toward 160 individual juice boxes.
She’s seen in the photo above posing with Springfield Police Officer Sullivan.
