Shop with a Cop of Silicon Valley
The shop with a  cop Foundation of Silicon Valley works on behalf of  law enforcement  officers  and the communities they serve  locally  to shape strong  partnerships  and breakdown communication barriers;rebuilding trust through active engagement, education  programs and outreach.
Please help us  to make this holiday season a little brighter for children in crisis and  under-served youth.

For the past 10 years, the Shop with a Cop Foundation Silicon Valley hosts over 100 under-served children for a holiday shopping spree with local Bay Area police officers. For many of the children, this special opportunity becomes the only holiday experience they will have. Some participants are selected from the Readers Are Leaders reading campaign at local elementary schools, where they “earn” their way to the shopping spree. Other children participating are living in traumatic crisis from the loss of a parent, domestic violence and other tragedies. With a uniformed police officer by their side during the shopping spree, each child receives a $150.00 Target gift card to shop for gifts for their family members and for themselves.

It’s really great to see the camaraderie between the officers and the kids and how they build a relationship and both get an understanding of each other.  It’s really great to see.

It’s kind of nice [Heroes & Helpers] because it’s a blessing in disguise. I’ve met Manuel and what he was thinking about more is giving to others instead of just getting a gift for himself.  It makes me see things from a different perspective.

If every parent understood the huge educational benefits and intense happiness brought about by reading aloud to their children, and if every parent- and every adult caring for a child-read aloud a minimum of three stories a day to the children in our lives, we could probably wipe out illiteracy within one generation.
