This year’s Everett Police Officer's Association Heroes and Helpers event will take place at the Everett Target in December 2017.
The goal of this event it to provide gifts for kids-in-need during the holiday season. Each child will be given a Target gift card and paired up to “shop with a cop.”
Last year, with the help of the EPOA, Target, officers, friends and family members, we were able to raise over $5200 and helped buy gifts for 77 children.
The children also get a pizza dinner and photos with Santa. We are hoping to raise at least the same amount, if not more this year. The more money we raise means the more children we can have a better Christmas this year!
This is a great experience and an opportunity for police officers to have a positive impact on a child who normally only sees officers during hard times. Every $50 we raise helps to sponsor another child in need.
