On the early morning of Saturday, December 9, 2017, 17 students attended the Alliston Walmart and were treated to a morning of shopping with an officer. They were each given a $100 gift card to purchase Christmas gifts for their family as well as themselves.
Following the shopping, students, officers and volunteers were taken to Murphy’s Farm, where they wrapped the gifts, took a wagon ride to meet Santa Claus and enjoyed hot chocolate and cookies.
A pizza lunch was generously provided to the students and volunteers by Dominios Pizza in Alliston. Each student was also presented with a $50 gift card from Zehrs in Alliston to go towards a Christmas dinner! Alliston McDonalds also graciously provided hot beverages to the officers and volunteers.
Members from the Nottawasaga OPP Detachment and Murphy’s Farm would like to thank the community for their generous donations and support towards this program and look forward to next year’s “Shop with a Cop” event!
