This Christmas, rather than purchasing and shipping gifts to our customers all over the world we decided to partner with the Bangor Police Department to sponsor the “Shop With A Cop” program.
We took 13 underprivileged children from the Bangor School Department shopping at the local Target store shopping for any and everything on their Christmas list. The kids bought gifts for themselves, their siblings, and in some cases their parents. These kids have never in their life been able to just roam the stores and choose items and not have to worry about not being able to afford it.
The following night the families and children were all invited back to the Police Station where we all had a wrapping party filled with pizza, homemade baked goods, and lots of smiles.
It was an incredible experience not just for the children, but for everyone involved.
It’s because of all of our customers that we are able to help the children and the Bangor PD. Thank you very much from all of us at C&L.
