Somerset County Shop With a Cop
December 13 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
The Somerset County Shop with a Cop program provides children the opportunity to go shopping with a police officer from their area — children who were the victim of crime, witnessed or experienced trauma, or have dealt with other unfortunate circumstances. This helps create friendship and support for these children so that they know they can trust and depend on officers when they are in need.
“We don’t want that tragedy to be the child’s enduring memory of law enforcement. Shop with a Cop helps build a lasting positive relationship between children and law enforcement by giving them a positive experience with us,” says Trooper Branden Snyder.
Children are recommended and chosen by local police departments and the Pennsylvania State Police. Each child will have $150 to spend while they are shopping.
When you sponsor a child with a $150 donation, you will recieve an “I Sponsored a Child” yard sign. These fun, colorfully designed signs show your friends and neighbors that you care about kids in need.
