Cops and Kids (formerly "Shop with a Cop") is ready to continue the tradition!
Cops and Kids (formerly known as Shop with a Cop) is making a difference in Hancock County, Ohio! For the past 20+ years, our local law enforcement departments have raised funds to provide children and families with a wonderful holiday. We also provide activities and events like a fishing derby, school supplies for member families, and more. Under our new name "Cops and Kids" your donation will help us continue our tradition of building positive relationships between law enforcement and our community.
What happens with the name change?
Nothing and everything all at the same time. We will still be fundraising and shopping each Christmas with children from the community, but now we can do so much more! We have a new lodge website that details our current programming and our hopes for the future.
In order for donations to be tax-deductible and to allow us to apply for grants, the Fort Findlay FOP has developed a nonprofit entity called "The Fort Findlay Fraternal Order of Police Lodge 20 Foundation". Because of this organization:
- Donations now stay in Hancock County - all fundraising is being run through our local FOP Lodge Foundation.
- All donations are now 100% tax-deductible.
And, we can build a better relationship with YOU, our donors.
Thank you for financially supporting our new organization.
