Sebastian Exchange Club supports Shop With A Cop

The Sebastian Exchange Club donated $2,000 to the Sebastian Shop With A Cop program on Saturday, July 22, at Riverside Park. 

Shop With a Cop is a yearly event when underprivileged children have an opportunity to go Christmas shopping with a police officer.

With the assistance of donations and fundraisers, like this one in July, money is raised and put into Walmart gift cards. Each officer is assigned a child and given a $100 gift card for the child to spend on anything they want.

The shopping excursion happens just prior to Christmas and is quite the event, with balloons and Walmart employees lined up on each side of the aisle to welcome the children.

Shop With A Cop is just one of the many charities the Sebastian Exchange Club supports. Read more.
