Annapolis Police Foundation Teams with Target for Back to School Shop With a Cop Event
The Annapolis Police Foundation is pleased to announce that it has received a Target Public Safety grant for the purchase of Target gift cards for Annapolis Police officers to take middle school children on a back to school shopping spree. On Thursday July 16th at 1pm, officers will be paired with a child for a one-on-one shopping experience at the Towne Centre Target store where they will pick out school supplies and uniforms.
This charitable project is one of several community outreach programs by the Annapolis
Police Department that fosters building trust between the police and the community. The Annapolis Police Department's Community Outreach program already performs over 800 events annually in the community, many focused on children's programs.
The newly formed Annapolis Police Foundation encourages additional donations to the school shopping project by sending a donation to the website annapolispolicefoundation.org.
Questions about the shopping program can be answered by Annapolis Police Foundation member Brian Finan at 301-332-8961, Target media spokesperson Catherine Rieley at 443-837-3540 or Annapolis Police Sgt. Amy Miguez at 410-268-9000. Participating children are selected by the Police Department's community outreach program personnel.
The mission of the Annapolis Police Foundation is to assist the community of Annapolis by raising charitable funds to support the Annapolis Police Department's programs and community outreach activities. The foundation is a 501(c)(3).
