Shop with a Cop; Shop with a Jock

Recently, Houston Police Chief Art Acevedo, members of the Houston Police Department, the Harris County Sheriff's Office and Target Superstore held the annual "Shop with a Cop, Shop with a Jock" holiday event.  

The holiday "extravaganza" took place at the Target Superstore on South Main Street.  

Forty pre-selected individuals participated in an hour-long event that includes a 10-minute shopping spree and celebrity guest appearances with current and retired professional athletes.  

During the holiday season, it becomes harder for low income and disadvantaged kids whose parents are struggling to find monetary opportunities to purchase gifts. “Shop with a Cop, Shop with Jock” allows kids to “Live in the Moment” and enjoy the holiday celebration.
