|The Heber Valley Fraternal Order of Police Lodge, Chief Ed Rhoades, and The Heber City Police Department are pleased to host and participate in the first annual Heber City Shop with a Cop which will be held this Saturday morning December 3rd, 2011 at 8:00AM at the Heber City Walmart located at 1274 S US Hwy 189.
Walmart and other local businesses as well as citizens have been very generous with donations allowing this event to occur. We are pleased that we are able to assist 24 children in shopping this year.
Shop with a Cop is a program that helps the children get to know their local police officers in a positive atmosphere as well as provide them with a Christmas they may not have had. This year we will be taking the children from Heber City Police Department to the Hub Café who has donated a breakfast for the event. After breakfast we will be going lights and sirens to the Walmart in Heber City to begin shopping. Walmart and its staff have donated time, supplies and money for this event. Many community participants will be at Walmart to assist in gift wrapping. A surprise visit from Santa and the Utah National Guard will happen.
