Walmart & GPD Sponsor Shop With A Cop

Thanks to a $2,000 Community Grant from the Spence Avenue Walmart, the Goldsboro Police Department helped make the Christmas season bright for several local children during its Shop with a Cop event. Police officers and participating children gathered at Walmart at 1002 N. Spence Ave, at 8 a.m. Saturday to shop for Christmas gifts.

The seven children who participated were selected by the Department of Social Services. Each child was able to spend about $200.

“The Goldsboro Police Department’s mission is to protect and serve the residents of our community. Outreach programs like Shop with a Cop are just one of the ways we serve,” said Goldsboro Police Chief Mike West. “We hope that we can help spread the Christmas cheer and give these 10 young kids the wonderful Christmas that they deserve.”
