15th Annual Shop with a Cop Event

Posted: Updated:
CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) -

Kiii-TV Channel 3 and the Corpus Christi Regional Lodge #27 Fraternal Order of Police has teamed up again for the 15th annual Shop with a Cop Event.

Through donations, they are able to take preselected area children holiday shopping.

On designated shopping days, members of our local law enforcement agencies, who have volunteered, arrive at several shopping location to meet their shopping buddy, to shop for their basic needs: school and play clothes, shoes and coats.

When that has been met, they move onto the fun stuff like toys and electronics.

Last year, over 390 children's Christmas wishes were filled, so they are asking for help to make the program a success this year for the youth of the community.

For more information on how you can make a donation, please call Tara Mylett at 361-443-4787 or email shopwithacop@fop.net.
