Help others have a Brighter Holiday Season!
The Westminster Police Department, Westminster Wal-Mart and other sponsors will be seeking donations for the Shop With A Cop Angel Tree again this year.
The unveiling of the tree will be on November 5, 2009 at 8:30 a.m. at the Westminster Wal-Mart, located on Woodward Drive in Westminster, Maryland. The tree will be decorated with gift tags to help less fortunate local residents have a brighter holiday season.
The gift tags range in price from ten dollars on up and shoppers are asked to selected a tag from the Shop With A Cop Angel Tree as they enter the Westminster Wal-Mart.
Local families experiencing economic hardships can’t always provide their children with their own celebration of Christmas.
The Shop With a Cop program joins these underprivileged children with Westminster Police Officers, providing the children with money to shop for Christmas presents for their families.
The Westminster Police Department provides breakfast, shopping at Wal-Mart, and then the children go to the Westminster Senior Center to wrap their gifts and enjoy lunch with their family.
