‘Shop with a Cop’ Saturday at Poulsbo Walmart

POULSBO — Local law enforcement officers host their ninth annual “Shop with a Cop” Christmas program on Saturday, 4-6:30 p.m., at Walmart, 21200 Olhava Way NW, Poulsbo.

The children, many of whom are homeless or living in shelters, will be met at Walmart by uniformed personnel and will pair up with their “cop.” Sheriff Steve Boyer will escort Santa and Mrs. Claus to the store.

Each child will have the opportunity to have a photograph taken with a uniformed officer and the Clauses, and then shop.

Each child will be provided $100 gift cards to spend on Christmas shopping however he or she wishes. An estimated 100 children are expected to participate in the program this year.
