Shopping with a Cop

TINA MILLER, Rotary Club of Tulsa

Officers from Tulsa FOP Lodge 93 partnered with the Rotary Club of Tulsa in early December for the annual “Shop with a Cop” held at the Target store at 1701 S. Yale Ave. During the event, 21 Tulsa police officers were paired with a Celia Clinton Elementary School student and a Rotary Club member to shop for Christmas presents for their families. While presents were being wrapped, the officer then secretly shopped for each child – making sure their whole family has a present under the tree on Christmas morning. This year $14,000 was raised, making it the biggest “Shop with a Cop” in Tulsa’s history. Also donating were Mark Allen Chevrolet, Simmons Bank and Griffin Communication.
