    Thumbs up Shop With A Cop - 2007

    I was looking for a good news story about yesterday's event, but the best stuff is on the home page!

    http://www.shopwithacopsandiego.com/

    There are also links to past years' events.

    I thought this meant that RSA was going to take me out to buy me some new shoes. J/K

    Kudos to everyone involved with that, especially those individuals who chipped in a little bit more.

    Some children went over the $100 and officers chipped in to help cover the cost of tax/etc.

    "Shop with a Cop" is such a wonderful program. I wish that our department had the funding to do something on that scale.

    If you look at the top of the page you will see the pin they sell as a fundraiser.

    The agencies rotate responsibilty as to who is "in charge" every year, but every agency in the county participates.

    For the officers, it all volunteer. They also have volunteers come in and wrap al the presents.

    Don't you just hate it when someone's balls are hidden so well, they can't seem to find it themselves ~ RSA

    You can't avoid gossip & rude words from
    people. You can't please everybody. But remember, they wouldn't bother if you meant nothing.

    I'll have to check and see if any agencies in this area are doing it and if not, I may just have to show that article to a few people as an idea for next year. Thanks, PDawg.

    That's awesome, Term. And not only are you providing them with your time and material things, you're also giving them such a positive impression of LEOs, one that hopefully they'll carry with them throughout their lives.

    At least until they grow up and meet me on the wrong side of the law. Then they'll think I'm a lazy, ticket-writing, minority harassing cop just like everyone else.

    Ours is on the 14th. My husband volunteered to go for me since I can't. It is a great thing to be a part of!
