Employees at High Touch’s Corpus Christi office worked together to raise funds as part of the office’s Community Christmas project.
Through anonymous donations, the office raised $150 to give to the Corpus Christi Police Department’s Shop With a Cop program.
The mission of Shop With a Cop is, “To assist underprivileged children at Christmas time with necessities and to build positive relations between youth of community and law enforcement.”
According to an article by the Corpus Christi Business News, “Currently underway, this year’s program has a list of 400 kids to take shopping with another 150 on the waiting list. Officers from every branch of law enforcement each take one child out for a day of shopping…The children are given $110 to spend on necessities, including clothes, shoes, jackets, and toiletries. A little is always left over for a toy at the end of the day.”
