Saying thank you doesn’t seem like enough, so we hope when we share photos from this Saturday’s Shop With A Cop event, that that will be the gift of thanks, as you see how you were able to bless and brighten so many children’s holidays.. God bless and know how grateful we are to serve such a fantastic community!!”
