LEONARDTOWN, Md. – Shop With A Cop, Inc. is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization. It was chartered to assist children whose families are having economic hardships. Each child is teamed up with a police officer for the day with the intent of providing a positive experience dealing with members of law enforcement while having a memorable shopping experience before Christmas and before their return to school in the fall.
We would like to once again thank all of the police officers, Optimist Clubs and community members who support this youth program. The 100+ children who were able to participate in this past year of 2022 and the community are very appreciative.
Also, a very special thanks to the many anonymous cash contributors and the below listed businesses and patrons for their contributions. This community generosity has allowed the Shop With A Cop, Inc. program to continue through 19 years of operation. We look forward to 2023 which will mark the 20th anniversary of this successful community program.
