Kids to "Shop with a Cop" for back-to-school clothes

August 18, 2004 00:00

  

On Wednesday, August 18, 2004, from 7 a.m. to 10 a.m., off-duty Portland Police Bureau Officers will take area children shopping for back-to-school clothes at the Southeast Fred Meyer, located at 5253 SE 82nd Avenue in Portland. This is the second annual “Shop with a Cop,” which is funded by Lents/Brentwood Darlington Weed and Seed, with Fred Meyer providing special discounts and breakfast for the parents.

Approximately 90 children from low-income housing in the Lents/Brentwood-Darlington area will have the opportunity to Shop with a Cop—up from 60 kids last year. The children will have an opportunity to shop for clothes; while their parents will be able to gather information on a variety of services and crime prevention information from the Office of Neighborhood Involvement (ONI). In addition to providing school clothes and supplies, the event is a chance for police officers to build positive relationships with youth from a wide variety of cultural backgrounds.

The program also has the support and cooperation from the Rose CDC; Wattles Boys and Girls Club; Portland Police Sunshine Division; and the Portland Police Association. The event, which is organized by Sergeant Larry Graham, includes officers who are volunteering on their own time.
