Heroes and Helpers began in 2009 (formerly known as Shop with a Cop) and has so far assisted 32 families in Richfield. The Richfield PD wants to support at least the same number of families as last year (12) – sponsor a Richfield Family for $150 and help the Richfield PD reach their goal!
The children of sponsored families are paired with an officer who will be their shopping partner. They then go to the Richfield Super Target where, with support from the officer, they buy gifts for their parents,siblings, family members and an item for themselves. After shopping, everyone returns to the police station for a pizza dinner and to wrap presents, with the support of community volunteers.
It’s a wonderful opportunity for relationship building between Richfield residents and police officers. $150 will sponsor an entire family. If interested in donating (any amount welcome), please contact Isela Gomez, 612.861.9840 by Tuesday, November 4.
