We just wanted to take a moment to say "Thank You" for helping to create such a special day for 39 Annapolis children. Please know that "Shop with a Cop" would not be the same without your support and kindness.

It doesn't get any better than seeing these smiles!  

Annapolis "Shop With A Cop" is a cherished annual event supported by The Annapolis Optimist Club. Watching the children interact with members of our law enforcement community in a positive setting goes a long way to foster respect and understanding. We have re-imagined the day to keep it COVID-safe for both the children and members of our law enforcement community.

Saturday, December 4, 2021:  How the day will unfold...

Local schools will each select two deserving children to participate in our "Shop with a Cop" program. The children will provide us with a shopping list and we will do the shopping online for each child. Volunteers (socially distanced in our conference room) will wrap all the gifts as well as create a special backpack for each child. On Saturday, December 4, 2021, members of the law enforcement community will deliver the backpack and gifts to each child's home. This year we hope to give 30 children a magical holiday experience!! Our target goal is $5000! 

Thank you in advance for helping The Annapolis Optimist Club bring joy to a group of very special children during the holidays.  Your gift -- no matter how large or small -- can make a huge difference in a child's life.

Hello Everyone,

We are just $267 away from our "Shop with a Cop" goal! Can you believe it? We are so grateful to all of you for your kindness and generosity. We have expanded our "giving list" to 39 Annapolis children this year.

As you can see, Santa's elves have been busy getting everything ready for this Saturday! The North Pole is actually looking a lot like our office! LOL

We could not do it without all of your amazing support. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. ❤️

Sincerely,
Jack Papaleonti
