First Lady of Wyoming, Jennie Gordon, is partnering with Natrona County Law Enforcement’s Shop with a Cop Program to feed 400 local kids this holiday season.

The Annual Natrona County Law Enforcement Shop with a Cop Program accepts donations from the community to provide a one-on-one shopping experience to underprivileged children within our community.

This year, each participating child will receive a food basket as part of the First Lady’s Wyoming Hunger Initiative.

“When we began planning for this year’s program, our donations were drastically lower than years past,” said Casper Police Sergeant Jeff Bullard. “We let our community know, and they showed up for our local children in a big way. We are now on track to provide this experience to more children than we ever have in the past. With the partnership of the First Lady of Wyoming, not only will these children receive presents for the holidays, they will leave knowing they have a sustainable meal for days to come. We are so grateful for the First Lady’s generosity and dedication to preventing food insecurity throughout our State – and in our community.”

In October 2019, the First Lady launched the Wyoming Hunger Initiative, whose mission is to end childhood hunger in Wyoming. The initiative works to prevent food insecurity by increasing awareness and support for the work of local anti-hunger organizations statewide. This effort would not be possible without the generosity of our community, specifically, that of our local Casper Walmart locations, who so graciously agreed to put together the food baskets for the program.

This year’s Shop with a Cop is scheduled to take place this weekend, December 5th and December 6th, at both Casper Walmart locations. At this time, applications are closed and families are in the process of being notified of their acceptance to the program.

The Casper Police Department is dedicated to the protection and safety of our community through the highest standards of professionalism in police services.
