News Release
Shop with a Cop (Photo) - 12/06/17

On Saturday, December 9, 2017, deputies and officers from local law enforcement agencies will be dashing down the aisles of Walmart to help provide a brighter holiday for some foster children in Douglas County.

The Douglas County Sheriff's Office, Roseburg Police Department, Sutherlin Police Department, Myrtle Creek Police Department, Winston Police Department and Oregon State Police will be participating in the annual "Shop with a Cop" from 8:45 -- 10:30 a.m. on Saturday.

Twenty-five foster children have been selected and will be paired up with a police officer and given money to buy Christmas gifts for their families. The officers help the children pick out gifts for their family and then help wrap them. Before leaving, each child is given their own gift and a filled stocking.

Our goal is to help make the holiday season happier for these children and to give them the opportunity to interact with law enforcement in a positive setting.

We would like to thank Roseburg Walmart for hosting this event and Christmas for Kids Douglas County for their generous donation of $2000 to help fund this very special program.

Shop with a Cop is funded through local law enforcement employee donations and public donations. Donations to sustain the program are greatly appreciated and can be sent to Douglas County Shop with a Cop, C/O Greater Douglas United Way, 702 SE Jackson Street, Roseburg, OR 97470.
