Police Department accepting donations for Shop with a Cop

From WSJ Staff Reports

The Wake Forest Police Department is accepting donations from area residents and businesses for the 22nd Annual Shop with a Cop. To contribute online via PayPal, visit https://bit.ly/WFShopCop. Checks and cash may also be mailed or delivered to the Wake Forest Police Department, 225 S. Taylor St.

Shop with a Cop was created to help less fortunate boys and girls in the Wake Forest area experience a joyous Christmas. Each year, thanks to grants and the generous donations of residents, merchants, civic clubs and other organizations, approximately 25 area children each receive $175 to spend on a winter coat and other items of their choice.

Due to COVID-19, police officials are considering several options for safely conducting the children’s holiday shopping spree this year. Additional information will be provided once plans are finalized.

Since its inception in 1999, the program has helped well over 550 local children. For more information, contact Cpl. C. Johnson-Perry at 919-435-9610 or cperry@wakeforestnc.gov.

The Police Department’s Shop with a Cop program is a “Wake Forest Cares” initiative. To learn more, visit www.wakeforestnc.gov/wake-forest-cares.
