What is Shop With a Cop?
The purpose of the event is to foster positive relationships between youth and officers. Young kids K - 6th are selected each year during the end-of-the-year holiday season to shop at one of the local area stores to purchase gifts for members of their immediate family. Each child is given a small amount of money to spend, normally $50.00 - $100.00 depending on the size of the child's immediate family. Sheriff Charles R. Black, Jr. and his crew provided funding for 110 youth during the 2017 Holiday Season.
Shop With A Cop
Dear Shop with a Cop Supporters,
For the past four years the deputies and I have conducted the Shop with a Cop program here in Monroe County. When this program started up years ago, we only had funds at that time to assist two children at Christmas.
We have a lot of children in the County that do not receive anything or very little at Christmas time. I feel that due to the fact that we actually take the time to take children shopping shows them that someone really cares about their needs. I also feel this program does make a difference in their lives.
I am writing this letter to request any amount of donation in order to help assist more children this Christmas. If you feel that you can make a donation, it would be greatly appreciated.
Donations can be mailed to:
Monroe County Sheriff's Office
47129 Moore Ridge Road
Woodsfield, Ohio 43793
Receipts will be sent upon receiving donations.
Thank you in advance
Charles R. Black, Jr.
Monroe County Sheriff
