Shop With A Cop
On Monday, December 9, 2013, the Anaheim Police Department held its first ever Heroes and Helpers Shop with a Cop event!
Fifty-Five (55) uniformed APD officers (complete with Santa hat) volunteered their time to be partnered with an in-n…eed child for a morning of shopping. Each officer–child pair was given a $100 Target gift card to spend however they wished!
Target awarded the Anaheim Police Department’s Cop 4 Kids program a Heroes and Helpers holiday shopping spree. The Heroes and Helpers program is a part of the Target and Blue effort, which pairs Public Safety officers with in–need youth for a day of holiday shopping.
The morning started with a continental breakfast at 6:30 AM and shopping began at 7 AM. The store was closed to the public during the event!
Although Target was very generous in it’s donation so, too, were the Anaheim Police Officers who participated in this event. Combined, the officers who volunteered their time contributed over $750 of their own money to cover any purchases which exceeded the $100 gift card.
