3rd Annual Shop with a Cop event brings joy to Grant County families for Christmas

The Grant County Sheriff's Office and Moses Lake Police Department teamed up with local businesses Wednesday night to host their third annual Shop with a Cop event in Moses Lake. 

This year, nine children and one family were selected for the program through suggestions made by the Moses Lake School District, Ephrata School District, and Serve Moses Lake. The children were served a pizza dinner, and given a $300 Walmart gift card. The kids were then taken on a shopping spree with the assistance of Grant County Sheriff's Deputies and Moses Lake Police Officers.

One area family was also gifted a $800 gift card to use for Christmas gifts, food, and household items. At the end of the evening, officers found a random family, and helped them by purchasing everything in their cart.
