$1,000 Donation to 2021 Cops and Kids Back to School Event

2021 Cops and Kids Back to School

COVID-19 has brought many challenges to how we go about our daily lives. One group that we don’t want to slip through the cracks and get lost in the shuffle are disadvantaged youth. That is why we are pleased to have the opportunity to directly help Phoenix kids by sponsoring the Phoenix Fraternal Order of Police (F.O.P) – Lodge #2’s 2021 Cops and Kids Back to School event. 

This charitable event will make it possible for kids struggling with educational disparities to get essential tools to help reduce distractions, thus have a more productive school day in whatever learning environment they find themselves—whether it be a hybrid in-person or virtual distance learning experience.

How Are Children Selected to Participate?

A committee of local law enforcement officers will carefully select and screen children and families that they believe are among the most in need.  

Then, during the Cops and Kids Back to School event, students will be paired with a Phoenix law enforcement officer or public safety employee to enjoy a special shopping day to purchase essential school items. Our $1,000 donation will be split between approximately five students.  

For more specific information about the 2021 Cops and Kids Back to School event, please contact the Phoenix F.O.P – Lodge #2 by phone at (602) 491-9195, or online at phxfop2.com.

How Joining Resources Can Make a Difference

The Phoenix F.O.P. – Lodge #2 believes that through positive outreach and community relationships, we can all make a difference in the lives of children and families in need within our city and surrounding area neighborhoods. 

Our Lerner and Rowe Gives Back foundation shares this belief and knows that we can do more and reach further by joining our resources. That is why we invite you to join us in giving back by supporting the Cops and Kids program today.
