Day Two For Cash Donations At EPD Records For Shop With A Cop 2021

November 30, 2021

Everett, Police Blotter

Today is day 2 of our week-long effort to assist the Everett Police Officers Association in collecting funds to fill the wish lists of local kids this Holiday Season.

From 2019, Officers wait for the first group of kids to arrive.

It is the 7th year for “Shop with a Cop” for Everett Police and things are still a bit different. Instead of going through a department store with an officer and selecting gifts for themselves and their family members kids referred by the Everett Gospel Mission and other social service agencies are creating lists that the EPOA will work to fill.

That’s a main reason this year the request is for cash donations which allows shoppers to target multiple retailers and methods to get the right gifts requested by the child. Later in December the cops and kids will get together to enjoy a visit with Santa and the kids will receive their gifts to bring back to their families.

You can drop your donation off at the Everett Police Records Department at 3002 Wetmore Avenue in downtown Everett every day this week between 9am and 4pm. If you’d like to donate by check and be able to claim a charitable tax deduction you can make the check payable to the Everett Gospel Mission and be sure to put “Shop with a Cop” in the memo line. Checks also need to be dropped off with EPD Records.

MyEverettNews.com is matching the first $500.00 of cash donations this week and if you can’t make it to the EPD records room, give me a call at (425) 280-7620 or send me an email at news@myeverettnews.com and I’ll come pick up your donation and take it there for you. Thanks for your help and support of this very worthwhile effort.
