Police in the Ottawa Valley are joining detachments across the province to recognize youth who are contributing to their community this holiday season.

The OPP is partnering with Mac’s stores across Ontario to give tickets for free hot chocolate to kids who are making a difference.

As part of Operation Heat 2015, officers will be looking for children who are doing good deeds, being part of community activities, having community pride and more.  Positive tickets will then be given to kids to redeem at Mac’s stores.
