10th annual Shop With A Cop

The Quakertown Borough Police Department is seeking your support to help local children have a more enjoyable holiday season.
Posted on 10/05/2020
SRO Bob Lee is all smiles helping a child purchase items during the 2019 Shop With A Cop program. When School Resource Officer Bob Lee began the local Shop With A Cop effort 10 years ago, the Quakertown Borough Police Department helped 14 children. Last year, Shop With A Cop was able to give 138 local children the opportunity to shop with an officer as 11 other local police departments joined with QPD to afford local families a better holiday.

Shop With A Cop raised more than $41,000 a year ago with more than 50 officers and 40 additional volunteers coming together to help local families in need. The program, geared toward Quakertown Community School District elementary aged children, gives them the opportunity to view police officers in a different atmosphere to promote positive relationships. The children are faced with life challenges, such as a parent losing a job, homelessness, military deployment, economic shortcomings, and other hardships.

Funded through the generous donations from the community and local businesses, Shop With A Cop affords each child a monetary gift card to purchase gifts for themselves and family members, allowing for a more enjoyable holiday. Volunteers from the community help with gift wrapping, hosting, and registration. Participating police officers volunteer their own time to support the program.

Shop With A Cop was developed to help make the holidays brighter for disadvantaged families in the district. But it needs your support! Please contact Julie Bender at 215.536.5001 x134 or jbender@quakertown.org with any questions.
