In August 2019, the St. Croix County Deputies Benevolent Association will hold its third annual “Shop with a Cop” event. The Benevolent Association teams up with Grace Place and the Salvation Army out of New Richmond. The Benevolent Association, with the help of six local school districts, will nominate children who fit the criteria for the program.
Local law enforcement officers volunteer their time to shop with a child for new outfits, a new pair of shoes and other basic items like socks and underwear to get their school year off to a great start. Children will pair with an officer and then took a ride in a squad car to Wal-Mart in New Richmond to do some shopping. The day will not only help the physical needs of the child but also forge healthy relationships with local law enforcement Officers that participate.
In 2017, community members and businesses within St. Croix County sponsored 45 children to go shopping with a Cop by sponsoring $6,200. In 2018, the sponsorship rose to 66 children and $9,200. This program could not exist if not for community members and businesses in St. Croix County. In 2019, the Benevolent Association is hoping to get sponsorship for over $12,000 in hopes to help approximately 100 children in St. Croix County.
There were volunteer Officers from St. Croix County Sheriff’s Office, New Richmond Police Department, Roberts Police Department, Baldwin Police Department and Glenwood City Police Department. Also volunteers from the Salvation Army and Hudson Youth Actions. Like us on Facebook, Saint Croix County Deputies Benevolent Association, for information on this event. Please consider sponsoring a child this year. Sponsorships are open now and will continue until the end of July, 2019.
