The Annual Shop with a Hero Holiday Event is new spin on the national “Shop with a Cop” campaign operating in conjunction with the Community Action Partnership of New Jersey. For this annual event 250 Children receive $100 gift cards to go shopping within the City of Newark, with local heroes; Fire Fighters, Police Officers, Educators, Community Leaders and many more! We hope that this continues to create an environment for a child and a hero to build a lasting bond and mentorship.
