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. Last year, thanks to the big hearts of donors like you, we were able to host a total of 200 children from Washtenaw County between the Meijer store on Jackson Avenue in Scio Township and the Meijer store on Belleville Road in Belleville.
In 2017 we added a very special event, Shop with a Cop – Back to School edition. WCSO teamed up with University of Michigan Mott Children’s Hospital where Officers from UofM Police Department and Washtenaw County Sheriff’s Office Deputies went shopping for back to school items with kids who were, or are patients at Mott. We hosted 60 kids and their families to a day of shopping and enjoying each other’s company in a fun environment.
Each year this program gets bigger and better, we hope this year is no different! We are graciously asking for donations in support of this program to provide each child with the opportunity to make their holidays and back to school time a little brighter!
