CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO (KFVS) -

It seems that helping others runs in the family for one officer with the Cape Girardeau Police Department.

Lexi, the daughter of Patrolman Alsdorf, has spearheaded a new project called "Cops for Kids." She collects toys, activities, and other things for children in need.

According to a Facebook post by the department, it began when Ptlm. Alsdorf told Lexi about a small child who had to go to her grandmother's house because of a domestic issue at her home. That child was only able to bring a few items. Lexi told her father she wanted to do something to help children in those situations.

Lexi has already gotten numerous donations of items, money, and gift cards.
