Each year, the Ashland Police Department is proud to host our “Shop with a Cop” Party for deserving children. Officers shop at businesses in Ashland to provide a special Christmas for the children and their families who may not be able to enjoy the holiday season due to the economy. This party allows our officers to have positive interaction with not only the children but also their families.
The overwhelming support of the Ashland business community is essential in assuring that this program flourishes each hear. Donations from Ashland area businesses provide gifts, food and fun for these families. We are genuinely privileged to have such caring businesses in our community.
The Ashland Christian Emergency Services (ACES) is responsible for accepting and dispersing these funds. As a result all donations are to a registered, charitable organization. If you are willing to participate in this event please make checks out to “ACES/Shop with a Cop” and mail to the Ashland Police Department, Attn. Officer Chip Watts, 601 England Street, Ashland, VA 23005.
If you have any questions regarding this program please do not hesitate to call the Ashland Police Department at (804) 412-0615.
