Local law enforcement prepares for 4th annual ‘Shop with a Cop.’ Here’s how you can give.
Erath County law enforcement agencies are wasting no time getting into the holiday spirit.
The agencies are working together to raise money for the fourth annual Shop with a Cop program, aimed at giving local at-risk youth a merry Christmas.
“We hope to support 50 kids again this year,” Stephenville Police Chief Dan Harris told Beneath the Surface News.
The fun will start bright and early on Thursday, Dec. 21, when kids will be treated to breakfast with a cop at The Purple Goat. They will then head to Walmart (with lights and sirens) for a Christmas shopping spree.
“Each child will receive $250 to purchase clothes, shoes and a toy from Walmart, which has been a phenomenal supporter of this event,” Chief Harris said.
You can make a donation to Shop with a Cop in any amount at First Financial Bank, Texas Department of Public Safety, Stephenville Police Department, Dublin Police Department and Erath County Sheriff’s Office.
“We are so blessed with a loving and giving community and we are thankful for any amount we receive,” he said.
