The REACH Foundation and Connecticut Law Enforcement strengthen their community outreach, while helping families who need a little extra holiday cheer this season.

Shop with a Cop provides a fun filled day for a number of children in need throughout Connecticut while creating positive relationships with law enforcement. The participating children are identified by schools, youth organizations, and social services agencies.

On the day of the event, uniformed officers from various local and state offices volunteer their time to be with the children for lunch at a designated destination. Following the time spent with the police officers the children participate in a law enforcement procession and head to a store for shopping with their “Partner for the Day”. Each child will shop for their family as well as a child from the community where the police officer serves.

Since 2013, The REACH Foundation has provided this experience to over 1,500 families throughout Connecticut.
