Another holiday season is upon us and so comes another year where we get ready to  help out kids right here in the Hudson Valley get presents.

For the last three years we've been collecting funds for a great cause.

WRRV's Shop with a Cop is a great way to give back to kids in the Hudson Valley who may not have the financial means to have a good Christmas. 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 which can be used at any store.

This year we want to make it even bigger. We've partnered up with the Hudson Valley Renegades, the Town of Poughkeepsie PBA, the Town of Kent Police Department , Troop K and several other departments to raise as much money as possible.

We'll be collecting money until mid December. You can join WRRV at Publick House 23 on Thursday, November 22 for a charity bar tending night. Proceeds will help fund Shop with a Cop.

If you know a child in the Hudson Valley who may need some holiday cheer feel free to fill out the anonymous form out below.
