Valparaiso F.O.P. Lodge 76, Valparaiso Police and Target (Valparaiso Store) came together to sponsor the 8th Annual Shop with a Cop. The event took place on Friday afternoon at the Target store in Valparaiso.
A total of 12 Valparaiso Officers assisted 12 students with purchasing items to get them prepared to return to school. Items purchased by F.O.P. Lodge 76 included shoes, clothing and back to school supplies. The 12 students were from Flint Lake and Thomas Jefferson Elementary Schools in Valparaiso.
In the past eight years, the Valparaiso F.O.P. has assisted with back to school supplies and clothing for over 130 students in the Valparaiso community. A special thanks to Target for their continued support and sponsorship of this program.
