Support Shop with a Cop as holidays approach

October 2, 2017   ·   0 Comments

The planning is already underway for the sixth annual Shop with a Cop event, to be held Dec. 16.
Each year, several children from less fortunate families in the community are identified to take part in the program. Each participant receives a Walmart gift card valued at $113 to purchase Christmas gifts for their family as well as themselves. The kids are treated to a morning of shopping with an officer, followed by breakfast with Santa Claus at Robert F. Hall Catholic Secondary School in Caledon East, where games and activities are played by all.
The Shop with a Cop event, supported by the Optimist Club of Caledon, relies entirely on community support and involvement to ensure its continued success. All donations go toward expenses associated with the program, such as gift cards, food, supplies and other giveaways.
For those who are interested in contributing to this event, donations can be made in the form of food items for breakfast, gifts of any kind for children, or financial. Those who would like to make a donation or learn more about this event are asked to contact Constable Joe Brisebois or Constable Tamara Schubert at 905-584-2241 or joe.brisebois@opp.ca and tamara.schubert@opp.ca for more details.
Members of Caledon OPP enjoy building relationships with the community they serve, and appreciate any consideration to support this initiative that is dear to their hearts. These donations will help deserving children and their families have a brighter and merrier Christmas.
