Shop with a Cop

The Kernersville Police Department is again organizing our annual Shop with a Cop. This program was developed in 2013 and has worked hard to sponsor kids in our local schools to go Christmas shopping with a Kernersville Police Officer. The kids are selected through our local schools by the School Resource Officer Division. This program exists to provide kids with Christmas gifts that they otherwise would not have. In the previous years, we have been blessed with the aid of Target’s Hero’s and Helpers program which was designed to accomplish the same goals. In addition, we have also had private sponsors to help donate funds that go directly to the kids for Christmas shopping in predetermined amounts. Unfortunately, we recently lost our outside sponsor and are in need.
