Shop with a Cop
Nine Placer County agencies are taking 80 kids shopping for the holidays! Nine area law enforcement agencies have chosen 80 deserving Placer County children to go shopping for the holidays. Each child can shop for up to $250 worth of clothes and holiday gifts for him/herself and their families and will be escorted in a law enforcement vehicle to Target, and will be paired up with an officer and a civilian employee to go shopping. After they shop, they’ll be taken to a local church to have lunch with their families and their law enforcement escorts. While they eat, Target’s elves will wrap their presents for them.
