This is what Shop With a Cop gives you. They give you a shoulder to lean on when you need to, they give you a family member for life. My world was turned upside down when my daughter got sick but with the help of Alicia, Darrell, and Shop With a Cop, my family was able to heal, regain its strength and smile again, and for that, I will always be thankful.
Students who met reading goal for 2nd trimester earned an ice-cream treat with local Law Officials.
I want to thank Shop with the Cop Foundation for all the blessings they've
given my family. You are all true heroes! Alicia and Darrell have helped me
so much and have become role models for me. Alicia has tutored me when
I was struggling in school, she helped me and my brother get our uniforms
and school supplies. During Christmas time Alicia signed us up for a
shopping spree at Target with heroes of our community! I'm so grateful for
Shop with a Cop and all the donors, volunteers, and supporters. You all have
impacted my life as well as other families in need.
The Shop with a Cop program has created an incentive based reading
program that encourages students at my school to develop a passion for reading. SWAC knows that reading is a life long skill
that students will need in order access higher level education and careers, so by fostering the desire to read SWAC is investing into the futures of each of our students.

Shop With a Cop helps motivate students to read because they want us to know how to read better, so that in the future we can use our reading skills in real life. I participated in the Shop With a Cop Shopping Spree when I was in 5th grade. It was so fun. I enjoyed talking to my cop while shopping. The best part was when we sat to eat and all the cops were talking to us.
I would like to thank Shop with a Cop for what they do for me and my school because they are the reason I now read constantly. I know that others at my school didn’t like reading, but now they do thanks to Shop with a Cop.
