WRRV has teamed up with Sherwood Tile and Hoagie Barmichaels to bring back Shop with a Cop and we plan to make this the biggest year yet. WRRV is once again teaming up with Hudson Valley law enforcement officers to help local children and families this holiday season who may not have the means.

For the last five years, we have made it our mission to offer a unique experience for children to go on a Christmas shopping spree accompanied by a local police officer who has gifted them a significant gift card to use at any store in the Poughkeepsie Galleria Mall.

We couldn't do this without the help from our wonderful sponsors: Sherwood Tile and Hoagie Barmichaels in Newburgh, who not only sponsored the event, but made generous donations as well.

This year we are hoping to give at least 20 kids right here in the Hudson Valley a Christmas they'll never forget with a role model.
