One local club took a ride on their tractors to help out needy kids throughout Washington County.

The Pioneer Antique Power Association of Belpre (PAPA) held it's Plow Day Show at the Howe's Grove Park Sunday afternoon.

PAPA presented the Washington County Sheriff's Office some money they help raise for the "Shop with a Cop" program.

It may be six months away, but they're already thinking about the kids who may not have gifts to open Christmas morning.

Last month, PAPA rode their tractors across Washington County to help underprivileged kids have a special and deserving Christmas.

"It means a great deal to all of us members of the club you know to be able to help them out to help with the underprivileged kids and stuff. We'll all have a blast," says PAPA President, Roger Snider.

"I think it's amazing. I honestly believe that every child should have the same opportunities as everyone else," says Mackenzie Rice.

PAPA raised over $2,000 for the "Shop with a Cop" program this year.
