Shop With A Cop


Child Riding a bike with a cop while they shopShop With A Cop raises money throughout the year in order to provide a joyous Christmas to underprivileged children within our community.

Individual officers "partner" with children one-on-one and accompany them to Walmart where each child is given over $175 to spend on items of their choice. Each child is also provided a winter coat which is not part of the $200 spending money.

After shopping, the children enjoy a pizza party at the Flaherty Park Community Center with their partner officer.
