On Tuesday, December 14th, 2010 the annual Shop with a Cop will take place. This event involves area police officers and firefighters meeting at the Bi-State Center at 08:00a.m., and convoy to Wal-Mart at 133 Arkansas Blvd. We will arrive at Wal-Mart at 9:00am. At this time each officer will be paired with a needy child from our area. Each child will be given $100 in order to do their Christmas shopping at the store.
This highly anticipated annual event is held each year to assist local children who may not otherwise have a Merry Christmas. This event is funded through proceeds from the annual Ed Worrell Memorial Tournament, a $2500 grant provided from the Arkansas Wal-Mart, and several donations provided by several local businesses as well as numerous private citizens.
This event is something that you must see to truly appreciate!
We request that if at all possible you attend to show support for these causes which touch the lives of so many children in this community. Please feel free to call me if you have any questions regarding this event.
Thank you and you can visit the Texarkana Arkansas Police Department online at http://www.txkusa.org/arkpolice.
