Shop with a Cop
Mukilteo police officers, firefighters and Snohomish County Sheriff's Office Deputies took 20 deserving local children Christmas shopping during the annual "Shop with a Cop" event Dec 22nd 2013.
The 20 children were nominated by their schools to participate in this event which gave each child $100 to buy gifts for themselves and their families. Students from Endeavour, Mukilteo, and Columbia Elementary schools participated in the event.
The event was made possible thanks to the tremendous donations from Mr. Kurt W.F. Rumens, President of Travis Industries, Fred Meyer, Matt Martin with State Farm Insurance and many other local businesses.
The children and their families were treated to dinner provided by Pizza Hut.
They were transported to a local store in a patrol car or fire department vehicle to do their shopping. Each child was paired up with a police officer, deputy and firefighter to help them select their gifts.
