Shop with a Cop is a national event that occurs with numerous police agencies every year. During our Shop with a Cop event, children in need are paired with a volunteering Police Officer. All Police officers act as mentors to their child on this day.
With the support of our local law enforcement agencies, sponsors, parents, community members, and several businesses, we are able to give these children a fun-filled, meaningful day. The trip is started off with a shopping spree at Wal-Mart. Each child receives a budget to shop for clothing items and a toy. After completing their shopping spree, children are able to take home items purchase and begin enjoying them.
This year is the 6th Annual Polar Bear Race and we hope that it is even better than the previous years. Last year we had a record year of giving, and to date, approximately $23,000.00 in Christmas gifts have been donated to nearly 120 kids right here in our community and abroad due in part to the support of our running community. We hope that you will join us again this year and help us continue to give during this year’s Christmas season.
