Shop With A Cop 2021
Hello everyone, my name is Shelby Ellis and I'm a Deputy in a small county in Florida. I love my job and have a soft spot for helping those in need, especially children! With that being said let's jump right in. I'm starting a fundraiser to help raise money to give to kids who are less fortunate than others. I want to make sure they wake up Christmas morning with a smile on their little faces. BUT I NEED YOUR HELP! This will be our 2nd year doing this for our county. Last year turned out so well and it filled lots of little heart with joy!
Shop with a Cop has been an amazing fundraiser for kids for several years now. Law Enforcement agencies all over raise money every year to be able to give kids in need a Christmas. How the program works is the children with good grades, and or those who strive to do their best in school, but don't have it as well off as other children get selected. It could be a child(ren) who have a single parent doing their best trying to make ends meet and just can' t afford Christmas. For this event we will let the teachers choose the kids who they think need it most. The teachers are the ones who see them every day and have a special bond with them and really know the children on a person level.
Once we have raised the funds we, (Law Enforcement) will meet those children at Walmart and let them pick out a few things they want. Whatever makes their little hearts happy (age appropriate of course).
I have been blessed with helping our neighboring county each year for the past several years with this event. I have decided to raise the money for my own county and to help the kids in my community this year again like last year. We as Law Enforcement get to spend time with these awesome kids and build a good report with them. We get to show them that we are their friends and to not be scare of us, but instead they should always feel safe to come up to us. The best part about it all is the smile on those kiddos faces! To know they will be waking up with presents under the tree. The hugs and love I have received from my previous times is unforgettable.
If you feel lead to donate to this cause to help put a smile on a sweet child's face, please do. Even if it is only 5 dollars, any and every donation will be greatly appreciated.
