The Washtenaw County Sheriff's Office will host its "Shop with a Cop" program once again this holiday season.


The goal is to help 200 children in need by letting them shop for toys.  

The first Shop with a Cop event will take place on November 30th at the Jackson Avenue Meijer store in Scio Township.  The second will also be hosted at a Meijer store in Belleville on December 7th.

Sgt. Keith Flores says they need gift cards to make it happen.

"The east side covers Ypsi and Lincoln school districts, while the west side covers Manchester, Chelsea, Dexter, and Whitmore Lake school districts."

For more information, you can contact the Washtenaw County Sheriff's Office in Ann Arbor.
