Long Beach elementary students get free shopping spree at ‘Shop with a Cop’ event – Press Telegram
According to the Long Beach Police Department, approximately 100 students at Webster Elementary School in Long Beach were able to “shop with a cop” on Saturday, Nov. 8.
The students each received a $100 gift card to shop at Target at 2270 N. Bellflower Boulevard. Each child partnered with an LBPD employee, whether officer or civilian, to purchase gifts, toys, clothing, school supplies and more, according to an LBPD statement.
The shopping spree was made possible by the Long Beach Police Foundation, Long Beach Transit and Long Beach Education Foundation, the LBPD said, to serve the city’s economically disadvantaged children.
The event also included breakfast and arts and crafts for children.
