Shop with a Cop Hits Centralia over the Weekend

Centralia police held their annual Shop with a Cop event Saturday at Walmart, and according to CPD, the annual tradition has been going on for more than 30 years.

Each year police officers shop with around 150 children, allowing them choose toys, clothes, shoes, etc. that they would like to have for Christmas.

This year officers were fortunate enough to have volunteers from the Centralia Correctional Center, Centralia Fire Protection District, Catholic Youth Group and some members of the Centralia Orphan Football team to help shop with the children.

CPD thanks all the volunteers as well as Centralia Walmart employees, Centralia Monical’s for providing lunch to all the volunteers afterward, and the community that continues to raise the bar each and every year with their monetary donations.
