Bedford County Shop With A Cop

A Christmas Shopping Program for Children in Bedford County

Shop With A Cop is a non-profit organization that is dedicated to helping children in Bedford County who were victims of crime or unfortunate circumstances that involved our local law enforcement throughout the year. Each child that is chosen to participate in this event will be paired with a law enforcement officer that will spend quality time with the child and assist them in purchasing Christmas gifts. This program also helps promote a lasting and trusting relationship between children and local law enforcement. Please consider sponsoring a child or nominating a child today! We thank you for your continued support! Have questions? Please call us: 814-624-0041
