The Caledon Detachment of the Ontario Provincial Police is pleased to announce that chosen Caledon students will have the opportunity to participate in our second annual, “Shop with a Cop!” event. On Saturday, December 21, 46 deserving Caledon students will have the opportunity to spend time with a police officer shopping for Christmas gifts for their families. Each student will be provided with a $100.00 gift card graciously donated by local businesses and schools. The students will be transported to Wal-Mart Bolton to make their purchases followed by breakfast and other festivities at Caesar’s Event Centre in Bolton.
“After our amazing success last year with the inaugural ‘Shop With a Cop!,’ the decision was made to increase the scope of the program for 2014,” said Staff Sergeant Brian Knowler. “We created a committee of officers and civilian employees to plan the event and decided that we wanted to allow more children to take part. With a whole year to plan, we have been able to connect with more sponsors and create a fuller day for the shoppers, including Christmas crafts and activities, Christmas music and movies, and a visit from Santa. Once again, the generosity of the Caledon community has been overwhelming.”
On Saturday, December 14 at 11 a.m., auxiliary members of the Caledon Detachment will be fundraising for this special event at Wal-Mart in Bolton.
