Greenville Police Department host 10th annual ‘Shop with a Cop’

GREENVILLE, N.C. (WNCT) – It was a very exciting Saturday morning for about 30 kids who got to stuff shopping carts with the Greenville Police Department.

The 10th annual “Shop with a Cop” event was sponsored by the Greenville Noon Rotary.

Each kid was paired up with a rotarian or cop to shop for school clothes.

More than $4,000 was raised and divided equally among the kids.

Children were provided with shoes, socks, under garments, shorts, pants, tops and jackets.

J.C. Penneys also provided kids with books bags for the upcoming year.

The goal of the event is to provide children with a fully funded back to school shopping spree.
