The Paradise Police Officers' Association is gearing up for its 29th annual Shop With a Cop program, and fundraising is underway.
The holiday tradition takes place at the Kmart store in Paradise on December 5th. The goal is to team up underprivileged children from the community with a member of the Paradise Police Department. The children receive money to buy gifts for their families. After presents are purchased the Paradise High School cheerleaders wrap them all, which the kids get treated to breakfast, a stocking full of goodies and a movie and popcorn with their parents at Paradise Cinema 7.
The PPOA is accepting donations from the community to make it all happen. Make checks payable to "PPOA Shop with a Cop" and send to P.O. Box 860, Paradise, CA 95967. You can drop them off in person at the Police Department as well, or donate through www.gofundme.com/vt6fypw.
The PPOA also has a facebook page where you can learn more.
