Upcoming “Shop with a Cop”

The Irmo Police Department Community Foundation (IPDCF) is excited to announce its preparations for “Shop with a Cop” scheduled for Thursday, December 9, 2021, and Thursday, December 16, 2021, from 2:00-5:00 PM.

“Shop with a Cop” is a program to assist our friends and neighbors in our community by adopting less fortunate families and providing them an opportunity to shop with an Irmo police officer for food, clothing, toys, and other necessities during the holiday season.

“Shop with a Cop” is organized by the Irmo Police Department Community Foundation in partnership with the Irmo Police Department to solicit donations, identify and select families or seniors and organize their shopping trip. These families are carefully vetted and absolutely deserve the help that they receive. The sponsors of these families and seniors, whether an individual or business, are also invited to participate in this event so they can witness the difference they can make in someone’s life during the holidays.

These shopping trips are mostly funded by donations from community members and local businesses. Therefore, IPDCF asks that the community joins them in their efforts to raise enough funds to adopt as many families as possible. This wonderful project provides a great opportunity to bring law enforcement and neighbors together under positive circumstances. Each family can be adopted for $100.00

Commitments and donations are due no later than December 3, 2021, so that plans can be made accordingly. Contributions can be mailed to PO Box 2692, Irmo, SC 29063 or delivered to Irmo Police Department, 1230 Columbia Ave., Irmo, SC 29063. Checks or money orders should be payable to IPDCF. You also can visit their website and donate by credit or debit card at https://irmopdfund.org
