Tip a Cop will generate funds for Christmas program.
Diners at Motor Company Grill may not get the best service next Thursday, but it certainly will be service with a smile, and for a good cause. Servers at the restaurant will be members of local law enforcement agencies and 100 percent of all tips will be donated to the county's Shop with a Cop program.
After 17 years playing Santa in Macon County, the Macon County Shop with a Cop program hit a record high last year when they were able to take 258 local children shopping. The number of children served, which has grown from 16 children when it first started, is both a testament to the community support of the program and the need for such a program in the county.
