Youngsters will participate in Fauquier’s annual Shop With a Cop events this year.
Law enforcement officers will take 53 children on shopping sprees Saturday morning at the Walmart in Warrenton. Next week, they’ll do the same for 19 teenagers. Each participant will have a $200 allowance, with a meal following the shopping.
The youngsters come from households where law enforcement offices have been involved.
Fauquier Cops for Kids raises funds with an annual spaghetti dinner and other events. The organization also received a $10,000 donation from a donor who wishes to remain anonymous.
All of the funds go to activities that support children, and the officers volunteer their time.
