Shop With A Cop®

For one Saturday morning in December children from Celia Clinton Elementary become miniature St. Nick’s as they participate in the Rotary Club of Tulsa’s annual Shop With A Cop®.  A minimum of 25 children from the Rotary Club of Tulsa’s “Partners In Education” school, Celia Clinton Elementary, are paired with Rotarians and police officers to map out a plan for Christmas shopping for their families.

Funded by both the Rotary Club of Tulsa Foundation and the Tulsa Fraternal Order of Police, the goal of the Shop With A Cop® event is to create a new relationship between these children and police.  Working together, the children can see the police officers as real people who are there for their safety and with whom they can communicate.   Shop With A Cop®  also creates a Christmas for families who do not have money to purchase gifts.  The excitement of a child who has never really shopped for someone else and to do so with a police officer can be a life changing memory.

Rotary Club of Tulsa looks to the first Saturday morning of December to do the Shop With A Cop® event.  Currently the Target Store located at 17th and Yale has partnered with the Rotary Club of Tulsa to host the students and provide complimentary wrapping paper and gift boxes, doughnuts and hot chocolate.

Additional help comes from family members, high school and college students as well as the fantastic Target team members.  Every volunteer hopes that Shop With A Cop® will brighten the holidays of students from our adopted school and begin to create new relationships and respect between students and the police!
