The Perry Police Department will be initiating a program designed to assist the less fortunate children in the Community of Perry to have a brighter Christmas Season. The idea to bring in such a program came from the Boone Police Benefit Association.
The Perry Police Department, with the help of the community, will be sponsoring a SHOP WITH A COP PROGRAM. Shop with a Cop, is a unique program, in which Perry Police Officers share Christmas with children and families in Perry who are in need. Officers and kids spend time together, one on one, in an unforgettable holiday shopping experience. This is one way the Perry Police Officers make a positive contribution to the community.
“How to Participate?
We would like to ask you for help in this task. If you know of some children who could benefit from the SHOP WITH A COP PROGRAM, PLEASE send us a nomination form and let us know who they are. We are looking for children that meet the following criteria:
• The child must be in Kindergarten through 6TH Grade
• The child must have a social or economic need
• The child must reside within the Perry Community School District
The number of children we will be able to help will be limited by the amount of donations we receive. We have set a figure of $100.00 per child. The Perry Peace Officers Association will handle all funds obtained for the program. Each child chosen will sit down with an officer and make a Christmas shopping list for their family.
The Police Department will be responsible for shaving the list down
o the necessary number. We hope that all children nominated will be able to participate but we know this will probably not be possible. We urge you to write a note on the child’s nomination form, explaining some ofthe reasoning you used in making your decision to nominate that particular child.
Applications are due November 30th. Please return the completed application to:
