100 At-Risk Kids Treated to $100 Shopping Spree With Police Officers in Annual 'Shop With A Cop' Event
"It's a great experience to see the looks on the kids' faces," said First Deputy Navarro in video posted by the Chicago Police Department.
It was an entire day of giving back for the Chicago Police Department, who treated 100 at-risk kids to several hours of activities and gift-buying this week in their annual "Shop with a Cop" community event.
Each officer was assigned one of 100 children to shop with earlier Thursday, thanks to the generous donations of the Israel Idonjie Foundation.
"We bring the kids out, they shop with the police officers and it's a good day," said Officer Smith in a video posted to social media.
After a morning of bowling and a hearty lunch, each of the children received $100 to spend at Target on Christmas presents for their families, or new clothes for themselves.
"It's a great experience to see the looks on the kids' faces," First Deputy Navarro said in a video posted by the Chicago Police Department. "We know there are many children that don't have, and this is a great opportunity to give back."
