‘Shopping with a police’ events continue across the mountain this week | Jobs Reply

(WYMT) – Two other police departments held their annual Shop with a Cop events earlier this week.

On Thursday, Williamsburg Police Department officers conducted a raid at the Williamsburg Walmart.

Almost 150 children could participate in the event.

Volunteers from several agencies, including the sheriff’s office and fire department, came to help.

Meanwhile, Barbourville Police held their 2022 event Wednesday at the Barbourville Walmart.

Officials announced the event on the department’s Facebook page.

Police say they took the children to Pizza Hut to eat and then to the store to buy what they wanted.

On Monday and Tuesday, the Clay County Sheriff’s Office hosted its own shopping event at the Manchester Walmart.

The children who were taken in were selected by the school resource center managers of each school. They were able to give each child approximately $100 to spend on clothes and toys.
