The 5th annual ‘Shop with a Cop’ fundraiser will be held this Thursday, Nov. 15 at the Kent Senior Center.

This great annual fundraiser – which benefits Kent Youth and Family Services – will run from 6 – 7:30 p.m.

Here’s more from a Facebook page:

This event was created because there is an obvious need in our community.

Mayor Dana Ralph and Bailey Stober came up with the idea to host a fundraiser which would allow for youth from Kent Youth and Family Services AfterSchool Program to join us at Target, be paired up with a Kent Police Officer and spend $100 on anything their hearts desired. Many, of course, choose to spend the money on their siblings.

In partnership with the Kent Police Department and Target Store Kent (Kent, WA) – we invite you to attend our Fundraiser on November 15th. Our goal is to raise $2,500 this year which will support 50 youth from Birch Creek, Valli Kee and the Cascade communities to partake in this great event in December.

The Kent Senior Center is located at 600 E. Smith Street:
