WCSO “Shop With A Cop” 2017 Set To Give Dexter Area Kids A Happy Holiday

From the Washtenaw County Sheriff’s Office:

“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 2016, thanks to the big hearts of donors like you, we were able to host a total of 196 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, December 6, 2017 and the Shop with a Cop East takes place on Wednesday, December 13, 2017. 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.  The event takes place on Sunday, November 26, 2017 at the Buffalo Wild Wings on James L. Hart in Ypsilanti Township. You must bring a copy of THIS flier in order to participate!

“You can also view our Beyond the Badge Episode 7 which focuses on the Shop with a Cop program and how it benefits the children of Washtenaw County.

“To donate to Shop with a Cop, please contact Sgt. Eugene Rush (734) 973-4694 or rushe@ewashtenaw.org. Donations  (checks) can also be mailed to:
Shop with a Cop, Attn: Sgt. Eugene Rush; 2201 Hogback Rd., Ann Arbor, MI 48105 or by visiting The WCSO Shop with a Cop Facebook page and clicking the “Shop Now” button.
