The holidays were made a little brighter for 31 Moreno Valley children who were selected to participate in Shop with a Cop as part of the Moreno Valley Police Department’s Operation Holiday Cheer program.
On December 8, children were paired up with officers, volunteers, and police explorers to shop at the Moreno Valley Walmart for gifts for themselves and their families.
The department’s K-9 Arkan and Volunteer Posse Horse Duke also made an appearance.
Operation Holiday Cheer would not be possible without the support and generous donations from residents, and local businesses, including Walmart.
To donate to Operation Holiday Cheer, drop off new, unwrapped toys and sports equipment, gift cards, and wrapping paper and boys to the Moreno Valley Police Department.
