We're getting our list together, checking it twice, and looking for kids to participate in WRRV's Shop with a Cop 2021.
WRRV is teaming up with local law enforcement, local businesses, and you to help give kids in the community a very special Christmas. Here is how you can be a part of it and support a great cause.
There's still time to donate.
It's hard to believe but it's already November and the holiday season will soon be upon us and so comes another year where we get ready to help out kids right here in the Hudson Valley get presents.
A week before Christmas we will pair up a local kid with a local police officer and let them shop together at the Poughkeepsie Galleria with a gift card that can be used at any store.
We've partnered up with the Town of Poughkeepsie PBA along with Sherwood Tile and Granite and Profex Inc. in Newburgh to ensure that this year we help out more kids than before.
We're currently looking for kids to go shopping with the local officers on Saturday, December 18.
If you know a child who would benefit from this experience we would love to meet them and give them an awesome holiday that they will never forget. You can nominate a local child from here in the Hudson Valley by filling out the form below.
Nominees will be contacted by phone within the next few weeks.
LOOK: 50 famous memes and what they mean
