Police from several agencies throughout the region partnered with the Harrisburg Police Athletic League to take youth on the annual “Shop with a Cop” program. Police and youth met at the Heinz-Menaker Senior Center and enjoyed a hearty breakfast prepared by volunteers before heading out to Walmart to purchase Christmas presents for the children’s family. Everyone returned to the Heinz-Menaker Senior Center to wrap the presents.
This year the Harrisburg Bureau of Police participated in a “No Shave” November. Officers were permitted to grow a beard from mid-November until January 2nd for a donation of $25. The department raised $2,000 for the “No Shave” November and will present the money to HPAL during the “Shop with a Cop” event.
