In 2018, The Havelock Police Department introduced the Shop with A Cop event. Our first year was a huge success. One student from every school in Havelock was selected and was allowed to spend $150 at Walmart for Christmas gifts.
Our event has grown every year and we now select twelve students and provide $300 for each of them to spend on Christmas gifts.
The holiday season is a special time each year. People reflect on the past and look forward to the future. We give thanks, we give to others and we take the extra time to spend with family and friends. The Shop with a Cop event is an example of what it means by giving and bringing cheer and putting smiles on the faces of our youth.
This event is possible every year because of all the assistance we receive such as donations from the community, Walmart, City of Havelock and The Craven County Sheriff's Office. I thank each and every person and organization for helping us make Shop with A Cop such a huge success.
We are looking forward to our 5th annual event this December. We will provide more details in the coming months, so please check back often for updates.
