Season of Giving: 7th Annual Shop with a Cop Leaves Everybody Feeling Merry!!!

Season of Giving: 7th Annual Shop with a Cop Leaves Everybody Feeling Merry!!! Last night (December 14, 2015) at the Target store in Dorchester, there was a Santa sighting. Only, instead of the traditional red, there were over a hundred Santa’s helpers decked out in blue. In fact, for the last seven years, hundreds of BPD officers have participated in Target’s 'Shop with a Cop' event and, last night hundreds more – including MBTA Transit Police, UMass Police, Boston EMS and Mayor Marty Walsh - made their way to the Target store in Dorchester to spread some holiday cheer and go shopping with well over 300 kids from the community. Said one officer: “It’s an awesome night. We get a chance to play Santa Claus and really make a difference. The kids are great and there’s no better feeling than seeing a kid with a present in his hands and a smile on his face around the holidays.”
