I know you have all been waiting to hear the news about the fundraiser that NHN hosted for Shop with a Cop last week. I am so excited to tell you that thanks to their hard work and a very special donor…they raised enough money for us to take 280 children between the Scottsdale and the Mesa Shop with a Cop events! NHN members will be at both events to help us at the registers and pay for the kids as they go through the line. (Yes we still are hosting the Chandler TEEN Shop with a Cop on Dec. 3rd 9am at Chandler Fashion Center)
150 kids on Dec. 10th 7:00am at the Scottsdale Granite Reef Senior Center – Breakfast Sponsor Right Toyota – Walmart on Pima
130 kids on December 17th 7:30am at Mesa Community College – Breakfast Sponsor Lerner and Rowe –Target on Longmore
Final Meeting: Friday, November 18th 10am at Scottsdale Community College Social Behavioral Building, room SBE-181. It is the building that is just north of the Round-about and Flags near the Chaparral traffic light.
What does this means for all of us? We will need increased numbers of law enforcement personnel to attend both events so that we can pair up each child (one on one) with a cop for breakfast and shopping.
*If your agency wants to bring children that need help, with your department escorting…please plan on attending this meeting and notify us of the number of children you want to bring for both events.
*If you don’t want to bring children, but your agency wants to attend one or both of the events and shop with the children, please attend this meeting with approximate numbers of law enforcement personnel you think will want to be involved from your agency so we have a starting point for recruiting.
Everyone is invited to participate in planning….All branches of law enforcement throughout AZ and federal agencies, military, veterans, spouses and families of law enforcement, allies of law enforcement and kids, sponsors, donors, media.

Please buy your ticket to support AZLEOS Shop with a Cop. NHN members help volunteer at the event, bag the presents, and take 100% of the money that is raised during this amazing Happy Hour and pay for the kids holiday gifts. It is an amazing example of putting our community in community policing. This year their goal is 150 kids! Last year they sponsored 120 kids 🙂. Let’s help them meet their goal and help our cops connect with kids at risk. Thank you NHN!! Tickets are $30.
