2016 Back to School: Shop with a Cop
Description: Our Back to School Shop with a Cop took place on August 7, 2016 at the Kohl’s in Lake Zurich. We took 37 Barrington area school aged children shopping for back to school clothing, shoes and backpacks. This event is a great way for children to get to know their local police officers and have fun shopping for new clothing at the same time.
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.
