November Monthly Luncheon: 
Shop with Cops and Chief Todd Axtell

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

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

This year's Shop with Cops will take place Saturday, December 2.
You can help in the following areas:
