It’s fall, which means the holiday shopping season is almost here. Every year, we choose a number of different charities to work with over the holidays. This year we decided to take donations to give to the Dekalb Fraternal Order of Police to help with a charity called Shop With A Cop.
Donations to this program go toward sending children in need out on a day of holiday fun and shopping with their own person police escort. The benefits this program have are:
1 – It lets kids in need go have a fun day of shopping for toys and presents, which they may not be able to do on their own
2 – It teaches kids that police officers are nothing to fear, and that they’re just people who are doing a job just like everyone else
Incentive Solutions employees collectively donated $518, which was enough to send two children ($200 each) shopping with a cop for their own holiday fun day! The other $118 will go toward a third child and helping them have their own holiday shopping day. We’re grateful to have such giving employees like we do, and we hope that everyone finds their own fun way to help someone in need this holiday season!
