HALIFAX, Dec. 10, 2014 /CNW/ - Giving back will be the call of duty this December 10, 2014 when police officers across the country celebrate the holidays with kids for CopShop. This is a special initiative where children are paired with police officers to shop with a $200 gift card donated by the participating shopping centres. This year, nine 20 VIC Management shopping centres are participating in Alberta, Manitoba, Ontario, and Nova Scotia. The program expects to welcome over 300 kids and help make their holiday a little brighter.
The children chosen for CopShop are selected from recommendations based on need, recognition of specific academic or sports achievement or because of volunteer efforts that are making a difference in the community.
Participating shopping centres are:
- Marlborough Mall – Calgary, Alberta
- St. Vital Center – Winnipeg, Manitoba
- Pen Centre – St. Catherine's, Ontario
- Pickering Town Centre – Pickering, Ontario
- Lambton Mall- Sarnia, Ontario
- Lansdowne Place – Peterborough, Ontario
- Carlingwood Shopping Centre – Ottawa, Ontario (*held December 17th)
- Billings Bridge Shopping Centre – Ottawa, Ontario
- Halifax Shopping Centre – Halifax, NS
Note to media: Opportunities for media to partner with a CopShop shopping team are available.
