2017 Shop with a Cop

Description: Our 2017 Shop with a Cop was a huge success thanks to The United Way of Barrington who were our sponsors for the event and Groot who donated a new bicycle and helmet to every kid that attended (minus our 2 bike winners from Target). The event took place on Sunday December 17, 2017. We started at the Barrington Police/Fire Department where we ate breakfast with the families, gave out gifts with Santa, had a balloon twister and the biggest surprise…. every kid left with a new bike and helmet. After the event at the Fire department, we all went over to the Target in Lake Zurich where we shopped for clothes for the kids. Target also donated 1 girls and 1 boys bike with helmet to 2 kids that were chosen at random. It was an awesome day.

About Shop with a Cop

Each August and December we take about 45 children shopping at our local Target store. Each child is given $125 and a shopping cart so they can pick out winter clothes that they need and toys that they want. We also provide breakfast for each family that attends. Target also provides a girls and boys bike that we raffle off. The Shop with a Cop program is an amazing program that we have been doing for many years and it’s a great way for the children to get to know their local police officers in a non-traditional role.
