Shop with a Cop event helps equip kids for school!
The Boise Police Association and Boise
Police Officers will go back to school shopping with needy kids
this Saturday (August 21st) as part of the annual "Shop With
A Cop" program.
"This is exactly the kind of community
involvement we love to take part in, helping kids who might
otherwise go to school without the supplies they need." says Boise
Police Detective Bill Smith.
Shop with a Cop is an annual event that
benefits children in need of new school clothes and supplies. The
program is funded through the Boise Police Association, thanks to
donations from the community and assistance from K-mart stores.
Boise Police officers will participate by acting as personal
shoppers for about 60 children at the K Mart at Five Mile &
Fairview this Saturday. K-Mart gives a discount on the clothes and
items bought for the kids as well as giving them a hearty breakfast
before they begin their shopping adventure. This program is
intended to give kids in need a jump-start on the school year and
foster a sense of community in the children.
