Several students from Tamarac schools were specially selected to spend the morning at Toys ‘R’ Us for this year’s Shop with a Cop event.

School Resource Officer Barry French from Challenger and Tamarac Elementary and Neil Dodge from Millennium Middle School chose two needy students from each school, (three boys and three girls) including one student who had just lost his home in a fire.

The students were given a van ride to Toys ‘R’ Us in Plantation on Wednesday morning where their corporate headquarters had donated $100 gift cards for the children spend on anything they’d like for the holidays.

Tamarac District Captain Neal Glassman said that the boys preferred sporting goods and action figures while the girls picked out dolls and items from the movie Frozen.  Afterwards they all were taken to lunch courtesy of McDonald’s on Commercial Boulevard and University Drive.

Would you like to help a child for next year’s Shop with a Cop?  Donating a gift card to will provide an opportunity for more children to attend this event.  Contact Sgt. Richard Rossman at (954) 720-2225 or richard_rossman@sheriff.org
