Shop With Cops 2019

Another year of Shop With Cops has wrapped up! On Saturday, Dec. 7, children from YWCA St. Paul’s Housing programs participated in the 2019 Shop With Cops event, an annual tradition that gives children the opportunity to buy holiday gifts for their families and fosters positive relationships with law enforcement. Each year, Saint Paul Police Department staff help the children navigate the store and pick out gifts, with a $100 budget funded through donations and grants. After they’re done shopping, kids and cops return to the police station for pizza, games, and photos with Santa and Mrs. Claus while volunteers help wrap the gifts to take home. Read more about the 2019 Shop With Cops event, which more than 200 children attended.
