Badges for education and the improvement of literacy for all children.
Support the 13th annual Heroes and Helpers Shopping spree
We are currently raising funds for our 13th annual Heroes and Helpers Shopping spree to support 200+under-served youth here in Silicon Valley. And we are amplifying this focus in the midst of unprecedented challenges. I assure you that the needs are increasing, and the resources will be limited-and yet our selfless and essential police officers, stand ready to help and continue to show the human side of the badge.
100% of the funds raised will go towards supporting families in need this holiday season. No donation is too small or too large. We’re almost there. Help us move the needle closer to our goal by November 1, 2020.If you can’t make a donation please tell someone else who might consider donating.
For many of these children, it will be the only holiday experience they will have.
Help our organization by donating today! All donations go directly to making a difference for our cause.
Shop with a Cop Foundation of Silicon Valley promotes literacy among children ages 5-12 from under resourced neighborhoods and children who have suffered a traumatic crisis in their lives.
We aim to humanize the person behind the badge so children can see police officers from a positive perspective.

I want to thank Shop with the Cop Foundation for all the blessings they've
given my family. You are all true heroes! Alicia and Darrell have helped me
so much and have become role models for me. Alicia has tutored me when
I was struggling in school, she helped me and my brother get our uniforms
and school supplies. During Christmas time Alicia signed us up for a
shopping spree at Target with heroes of our community! I'm so grateful for
Shop with a Cop and all the donors, volunteers, and supporters. You all have
impacted my life as well as other families in need.
The Shop with a Cop program has created an incentive based reading
program that encourages students at my school to develop a passion for reading. SWAC knows that reading is a life long skill
that students will need in order access higher level education and careers, so by fostering the desire to read SWAC is investing into the futures of each of our students.

Shop With a Cop helps motivate students to read because they want us to know how to read better, so that in the future we can use our reading skills in real life. I participated in the Shop With a Cop Shopping Spree when I was in 5th grade. It was so fun. I enjoyed talking to my cop while shopping. The best part was when we sat to eat and all the cops were talking to us.
I would like to thank Shop with a Cop for what they do for me and my school because they are the reason I now read constantly. I know that others at my school didn’t like reading, but now they do thanks to Shop with a Cop.
