Shop with Cops
November Luncheon
ft. Saint Paul Chief of Police, Todd Axtell

As the holidays approach, we are excited to announce the Chamber's longstanding partnership with Saint Paul Police Department's Shop with Cop program. We are asking for donations from our members to help support Saint Paul Police Department's efforts to give back to the youngest members of our communities.

What is Shop w/ Cops?
The purpose of the event is to foster positive relationships between youth and officers. Each child is given money to spend on the their immediate family. Participants are assigned to a police officer to shop with them. After shopping, the children will share a meal with their officer.

Volunteers are a vital component to the success of the Shop with Cops. Coordination of the program is done by volunteers, which allows all financial support to directly benefit the participants of the program.

Join us for this special luncheon event as we hear from Saint Paul Police Chief Todd Axtell and his commitment to the Shop with Cops program!

Presenting Sponsor
November Economic Development Meeting
Business & Philanthropy
How does the business community help support charitable causes? What makes a donor excited to donate to a particular cause? How has philanthropy and charity changed? At the November Economic Development meeting we will answer these questions and more with a panel of experts.

Panelists include Duchesne Drew, Bush Foundation; Nicole Hansen, Securian Foundation; and Ann Mulholland, Saint Paul & Minnesota Foundation.

The event is hosted by the Capitol Region Watershed District at their new office space. Stay and take a tour to see how they converted the old MacQueen Equipment space into a modern, state-of-the-art creative space. Click here to learn more about the project.
