Santa Fe police shopped until they dropped today, all for the sake of spreading a little holiday cheer!
Officers assisted almost 70 children in picking out their holiday presents. Each child was given $75 dollars to spend inside Wal-Mart Friday, December 13, 2013. Guided by an officer, the children purchased clothing, toiletries, food and holiday presents. Some kids even chose to buy presents for their family members instead of themselves.
The children were selected by an outside agency or by officers they are familiar with.
Shop with a Cop is an annual SFPD tradition was started about eight years ago and something the department looks forward to each year.
It’s important to teach children that officers are always here to help them and officers are thrilled when they see how much the community donations mean to each family.
SFPD received donations from multiple community and business members and would like to especially thank Wal-Mart, Target, Squeaky Clean Car Wash, State Employees Credit Union, Santa Fe Motor Sports, Santa Fe Elks Lodge and the Santa Fe Police Officers Association.
