Shop with a Cop is fun for all

Shop with a Cop participants

The Gresham Optimist Club held their first Shop with a Cop for 2010 on Saturday, December 11.  Coordinated by Optimist Club members Sharon Strickland and Joe Anderson, fifteen youngsters were treated to a day of shopping at Target. Each child was paired with an Optimist Club member or police officer to help them pick out gifts for themselves or their families.



After the shopping trip, everyone enjoyed lunch at Burgerville thanks to Burgerville manager Kevin Schmid.

Burgers and fries please. 

The next Gresham Optimist Club Shop with a Cop will take place on Saturday, December 18, 9:30 a.m. at Fred Meyer in Gresham.

Thanks to Jean Jensen, Editor, Gresham Optigraph for the story and pictures.
