News Release
Vancouver Police and Nautilus, Inc. take over 100 local kids shopping for the holidays (Photo) - 12/05/19

Vancouver, Wash. – On Saturday, December 7, 2019, the Vancouver Police Officer’s Guild (VPOG) and Nautilus, Inc. will be hosting a holiday shopping event for kids in need. This will be the fourth year combining the Nautilus, Inc. Holiday Helper event with the VPOG Shop With A Cop. This combined event will allow over 100 local kids the opportunity to shop with more than 200 combined Vancouver Police officers and Nautilus, Inc. staff volunteering their time in the early morning hours. Each child will leave with wrapped gifts of their choosing to take home for Christmas.     

            Date:               Saturday, December 7, 2019

            Time:                5:30 a.m. - 7:30 a.m.

            Location:          Target (16200 NE Mill Plain Blvd.)

This will be the 27th anniversary of Shop With A Cop and the 16th year for Nautilus Holiday Helpers.  

Each year the Vancouver Police Officers Guild and Nautilus, Inc. work with multiple community social service agencies serving families in need to identify and select the children to participate in these shopping events (all children have already been pre-selected by the social service agencies and this event is not open to the general public).

Members of the media are invited and encouraged to attend and will have access to the store at 5:30a.m., with kids arriving at approximately 5:45a.m. The shopping event will conclude at 7:30a.m.
