Earlier this morning, the Dallas Police Department teamed up with Macy’s, Catholic Charities, and the Diocese of Dallas for the inaugural “Shop with a Cop” event. Small children and young teens eagerly arrived at the North Park Mall where they paired up with uniform officers for a memorable back to school shopping spree at Macy’s. Every participant started their morning with breakfast and a backpack full of school supplies. Macy’s gave each kid a $250 gift card so they could shop until they dropped. It was all smiles from that point on.
When the morning was coming to an end, the officers and their young shopping partners exchanged hugs and handshakes as they went their separate ways. And though they spent only a couple of hours together, they will share a moment that we hope will last a lifetime. The Dallas Police Department wish to extend a special thanks to all those who participated and sponsored Shop with a Cop. Together, we become one Dallas.
