A long standing community organization helping kids.
Kitsap Shop with a Cop is a 501C3 non – profit organization formed by a group of volunteers from local law enforcement agencies. Kitsap Shop with a Cop raises money throughout the year in order to provide needy area youth with a good Holiday season. Each year nearly 150 kids from area schools and tribal reservations get around $200 to shop at Walmart. A different school district is selected each year and the kids are selected by the school district. The kids are bussed to the Walmart, with a police lights and siren escort. Each child is paired with a “Cop” for the day who assists them in their shopping.
Discover how Kitsap Shop with a Cop is dedicated to fostering positive community connections, empowering children, and creating lasting memories through meaningful interactions between law enforcement officers and deserving kids.
Kitsap Shop with a Cop is dedicated to building positive relationships between law enforcement officers and underprivileged children. By pairing a child with a police officer for a day of shopping, we create lasting bonds based on trust and understanding.
We believe every child deserves a chance to experience the joy of receiving holiday gifts. Through our program, we empower children ensuring they have the resources they need to thrive.
Shop with a Cop goes beyond gift-giving; it's about creating memories that last a lifetime. These experiences not only brighten a child's day but also leave a positive impact on their perception of law enforcement, promoting safer and more connected communities.
