Annual Shop With A Cop (Winter Project)
Each year RHBA partners with Washington County Sheriff's Office and Raleigh Park Elementary School with their annual "Shop With A Cop" holiday event. This event helps foster positive relationships between youth and officers. Kids, K-5th, are selected each holiday season to shop for gifts for their immediate family. Each child is paired with a Washington County Sheriff Officer who then shop together selecting appropriate gifts for their siblings and parents. After shopping, the children and officers eat lunch, wrap their gifts, and continue to get to know the Washington County Support Staff and Officers, building positive connections in our neighborhoods. RHBA Members help with the shopping, providing the lunch, treats and in other ways as needed!
The school, Raleigh Park Elementary in our situation, works with the Sheriff's Office to identify the family needs. Volunteers make the purchases, and other items in need, along with food boxes. Because of the generosity of our members and their friends and colleagues, we were able to help 15 students in 2023 . Donations are accepted online by debit or credit.
Community service projects are ways we live our mission: To Support the community of Raleigh Hills: to promote a vibrant business environment, maintain a safe and healthy climate, create community consciousness, and maximize livability.
