WCSO Shop with a Cop 2016 – Donations Needed!
For the past fifteen years during the holiday season the Washtenaw County Sheriff’s Office has held the “Shop with a Cop” program in both western and eastern Washtenaw County. Its purpose is to provide children in need with an opportunity to shop for gifts for those whom they love.
Because the program is funded entirely by donations, the generosity of our donors is essential to the program’s success. In 2015, thanks to the big hearts of donors like you, we were able to host a total of 183 children from Washtenaw County between the Meijer store on Jackson Avenue in Scio Township and the Meijer store on Belleville Road in Belleville.
Each year this program gets bigger and better, we hope this year is no different! Shop with a Cop West takes place on Wednesday, November 30, 2016 and the Shop with a Cop East takes place on Wednesday, December 7, 2016. This year both events will be co-hosted by the Meijer on Jackson Avenue in Scio Township (West) and the Meijer store on Belleville Road in Belleville (East).
We are graciously asking for donations in support of this program to provide each child with the opportunity to make their holidays a little brighter!
Aside from donating directly to the program, WCSO has partnered with Buffalo Wild Wings to host an event where they will donate 20% of your bill to our “Shop with a Cop” events this year. If you choose to participate, please take a copy of the flyer to Buffalo Wild Wings on James L. Hart anytime for lunch or dinner on Thursday, October 27, 2016 and they will take care of the rest.
