Pittston's Shop with a Cop holiday program allows sponsors to help elementary-school-aged children buy gifts for their loved ones as they shop with law enforcement, promoting positive relationships and giving kids facing challenging times the chance to have a memorable day. In addition to gifts for their family, we have partnered with The Greater Pittston Santa Squad, which purchases gifts from participating children's wish lists to ensure they have gifts under the tree.
We then use sponsorship dollars to provide coffee, snacks, and a free lunch for the children and their caregivers during the event. We also allow the children to make smores with our Fire and EMS departments. Each Child is given a shopping bag and a pair of Holiday pajamas that have been donated by several organizations.
Our holiday event is an exceptional opportunity for individuals and companies to get involved and make a difference during the holidays. Your generosity at this time of year is a great gift to give and one that touches lives and brings people together to celebrate the season in a festive atmosphere.
The event takes place on December 2, 2023, from 10 am to 12 pm and is closed to the public. All participating departments volunteer their own time to support this program.
