An unsuspecting driver gets the shock of her year when they she was handed a $100 Target gift card from a Florissant police officer instead of a ticket!

The third annual Summons of Joy campaign kicked off at the Florissant Police Department. Churches in the Florissant area donated $9,800 to this program which gives officers with the Florissant Police Department the opportunity to give out 98 $100 Target gift cards to individuals/families that are in need this holiday season.

This program helps the police department build positive relationships with the community that we serve. The gift cards will be handed out randomly to unsuspecting recipients over the next three weeks.

Officers who had the opportunity to hand out these Summonses of Joy last year received many different kinds of reactions including hugs, tears of joy, disbelief, and many handshakes.

“We are excited to team up with our local churches for the third consecutive year and be given this opportunity to help others this Holiday season. It really shows the generosity of our community,” said Chief Tim Lowery.

The gigantic pile of 98, $100 Target gift cards that will be distributed throughout this year’s Summons of Joy project.
