The REACH Foundation is proud to introduce its newest annual program, Shop with a Cop! This one-on-one experience is designed to have uniformed officers spend a day with underprivileged children while socializing, shopping, and providing guidance during the holiday season. The children will shop for their family as well as a children’s organization from the community where the police officer serves. This unique shopping experience for the children is an opportunity that deters them for choosing a life of crime or violence. The participating children are identified by schools, youth organizations, and social services agencies.
On the day of the event, uniformed officers volunteer their time to be with the children for a meet and greet reception, participate in a law enforcement procession, and proceed to a store for shopping with their “Partner for the Day”.
Thank you to all sponsors, police officers, donors, volunteers, and everyone else who participated in Shop with a Cop 2013 and made it such a huge success! It is with your support that we are looking forward to making this an annual program and making a difference in children’s lives.
