About the Event

SHOP WITH A COP PITTSTON CITY POLICE DEPARTMENT IN PARTNERSHIP WITH SURROUNDING LAW ENFORCEMENT AGENCIES

With the holiday season rapidly approaching, The City of Pittston, Chief Neil Murphy and, Officers from surrounding Police Departments are preparing to host Shop with a Cop event on December 4, 2021 in conjunction with The Greater Pittston Memorial Library, The City of Pittston and The Downtown Pittston Partnership.

SHOP WITH A COP is a national program pairing police officers with children at the elementary school level to afford them a better Christmas. The program allows children to view police officers in a different atmosphere to promote positive relationships. The children are faced with life challenges such as a parent losing a job, homelessness, military deployment, economic shortcomings, and other hardships.

SHOP WITH A COP is funded through the generous donations for our own community, from private sponsors to local businesses. Volunteers from our community help with gift wrapping, hosting, and registration. Each child is allotted a monetary amount to purchase gifts for family members, allowing for a more enjoyable holiday. All participating police officers volunteer their own time to support the program.

SHOP WITH A COP was created to help make the holidays brighter for disadvantaged families. We cannot do it without your support! Questions or sponsorship information – please contact Mary Kroptavich at 570-299-7543 or email at mkroptavich@cityofpittston.org
