Caledon OPP says Thank You!

Submitted to Just Sayin' Caledon

On December 17, 2016, 73 deserving Caledon students had the opportunity to spend time with a police officer shopping for Christmas gifts for their families.

The fifth annual “Shop with a Cop” event was a success thanks to local businesses and schools.  The students were given an hour to wander the aisles of Wal-Mart on Mayfield Road to make their purchases.  The shoppers were then bussed to Robert F. Hall Catholic Secondary School.  The hungry shoppers were then served breakfast and had a special visit from Santa and participated in holiday games and a movie.

“This wonderful event truly encompasses the meaning of Christmas and essentially allowed officers the opportunity to give back to the youth in our community.  Huge smiling faces made it all worthwhile”, Constable Stephanie Hammond & Constable Joe Brisebois, Shop with a Cop Co-Chairs.
