Shop With a Cop
Our annual "Shop with a Cop" Day is held in December of each year. Schoolchildren from Pineville Elementary, identified by school staff, are given money to purchase gifts for family members. They are accompanied by a Pineville Police Officer/Fireman as they select gifts at our local Target Store. The goal is to start building relationships with officers and firemen early in these kids' lives so they understand that they are just regular people and are here to help. We also make arrangements for businesses and our neighbors to donate toys for kids from Sterling Elementary so that these youngsters had a memorable Christmas as well.
In 2021, we served 240 children and 10 senior adults.
