The 14th Annual Shop With A Cop Event was a HUGE success!

On Wednesday, December 6, 2017, the Fremont Police Department in partnership with Target Stores, Mission San Jose Rotary, the Fremont Police Officers Association, the Fremont Police Management Association, the Fremont Association of Management Employees, Suju’s, Slap Face Coffee & Tea and Fremont Bank held the 14th Annual “Shop with a Cop” event.

Each year the “Shop with a Cop” program invites 20 children, identified by the City of Fremont's Human Services Department, to participate and gives them the opportunity to purchase holiday gifts for their family members at Target. The children are chauffeured to and from school by a Fremont Police Officer and escorted by the officer and a special helper from Target to purchase their gifts. Once the child has completed his/her shopping, they stop at a “wrapping station” where they join volunteers to help wrap their family’s gifts. Following the wrapping, there are a number of games, activities and attractions for the children to participate in. At the end of the day the children are provided with lunch before being taken back to school. 

The goal of the program is to provide the children with the most important of holiday gifts, "the gift of giving." In case you're wondering about the children, they are not left out - gifts for each of the participants are purchased and wrapped ahead of time.

The event would not be possible if it weren't for the generous contributions from all of our sponsors and donors.  We'd like to thank everyone who participated and we wish you all a very happy and safe holiday season!
