AUBURN, Ind. – The Auburn Police Department will once again brighten the holiday season for children living within the city limits.
This year’s Shop With a Cop event will take place at 6 p.m. Dec. 14 at the Auburn Walmart. Applications for this year’s event are currently being accepted through Nov. 30. Application can be found at https://www.ci.auburn.in.us/177/Shop-with-a-Cop?fbclid=IwAR3ahiwuc3-HhPsCU4ZEJCQXHwJqWW8IGfbHQ14DyWpSjM1MNYUwjyT7n88.
During the shopping trip children are accompanied by a representative from the Auburn Police Department.
While shopping children will be encouraged to buy a needed item for themselves, such as a coat, hat, gloves, sweatshirts or other pieces of clothing. They will also be encouraged to purchase a small gift for family members.
The parent or guardian will be able to shop so their children will have a gift to open Christmas morning. One gift will be purchased for each child. If funds allow, some parents are also able to shop for some food items.
Items purchased during the event will not be eligible for returns.
