2015 Christmas: Shop with a Cop

Description: We had an amazing time with 16 families for our Annual Holiday Shop with a Cop. Thank you to everyone that played a roll in making this event happen. We started out with a catered breakfast at the Police/Fire Department Building, where all participants were given a wrapped gift. We also had a raffle table with items such as an American Girl Doll, a wireless speaker system, scooter, skateboard, giant castle, and a memory foam chair. We also gave each child a candy bag from the Sweet Spot of Barrington and a book and a stuffed animal from Kohl’s. We then all met at the Lake Zurich Target for a great morning of shopping. Thank you to Target for donating a girls and boys bike plus helmet for our event.

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.
