On December 8, 2022, members of The Southampton Town Police Department, The Southampton Town Police Explorers, the New York State Police, Westhampton Village Police and HUGS participated in a “Shop with a Cop” event sponsored by Walmart Stores. The event was an outstanding success helping children and families from Southampton Town bring holiday cheer to the season. Walmart in Riverhead provided a large donation along with Southampton Town Superior Officers Association, Southampton Town Policeman’s Benevolant Association, Westhampton Village Policeman’s Benevolant Association, Hugs, Inc. provided additional funds to the program . We would like to especially thank Walmart and their employees who were so welcoming and assisted us in spreading this holiday cheer. It brought much needed joy.
The program has been a highlight of our officers year allowing us to bring joy to deserving families especially this year which has been so tough on our community.
