The Lennox and Addington (L&A) County Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) have announced they have teamed up with the Limestone District School Board (LDSB) in L&A County again this year to allow selected students from grades 4 to 8 to “Shop with a Cop.”

According to a release from the OPP, 22 students have been identified by teachers to participate in the program this year. The annual program helps support families throughout our community, the OPP said in a press release on Tuesday, Dec. 5, 2023.

To make this program a success, the OPP is asking for donations from the public.

“We are still looking for donations to help support this great cause so please consider contributing a monetary donation to support ‘Shop with a Cop’ which will provide children and their families with a wonderful Christmas,” the OPP stated.

On Tuesday, Dec. 12, 2023, the selected students will have the opportunity to shop for their families. The OPP noted that transportation and lunch will be provided for the students.

For more information on how to donate to this program, contact the L&A County OPP in person at the Napanee detachment or call the office at 613-354-3369.
