2017 Kids 'N Cops

 Goal Statement:  To satisfy the needs of 1 more child than we did last year
WHAT IS KIDS N' COPS

The Eau Claire County Sheriff's Office will sponsor their 26th annual "Kids N' Cops" Program. The event allows underprivileged children from Eau Claire County to spend a fun filled day with Eau Claire County Law Enforcement Officers, University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire and CVTC.

The program involves officers and volunteers from various law enforcement agencies throughout Eau Claire County that donate their time to make the event a success.

The children will meet at the Target Super Center and are assigned officers to shop with. The officers will shop with the children to provide them with clothes, winter clothing and a few special Christmas presents. After the shopping experience the children and officers will meet Santa and his elves at the Target Cafe and enjoy a lunch and time to visit with the officers

WHO SPONSORS KIDS N'COPS
Dollar for dollar, all funds raised go directly to the shopping experience. The Eau Claire County Sheriff's Office and local Law Enforcement agencies have fundraiser's to help benefit the program along with private donations. We receive a grant from Target and they also donate the lunch for the children.
