All December long you helped us raise money for local kids in the Hudson Valley to go on a shopping spree at The Poughkeepsie Galleria and all of the holiday fun went down this past weekend.

WRRV's First Annual Shop with a Cop was a huge success, and we couldn't have done it without your help. Parents, teachers and friends nominated these kids because they are getting good grades, helping out and doing great things for our community. They help make things a little easier for our local law enforcement.

Local police officers met their newest little friends for the first time on Saturday morning. Then, the officers then have each child they were paired with a $200 gift card to use at any store they wanted at the Galleria as they accompanied them.

A special thanks to everyone who donated to help make this possible and thank you to all of our officers who participated.
