Donate to help support the 27th Annual Cops for Kids.
 
27th Annual Cops for Kids. The holiday season is quickly approaching and plans are being made for the 27th annual Cops for Kids event. Cops for Kids is a yearly event where officers are paired up with underprivileged children for the day.
 
On average (100-120), children are selected to participate in this Christmas event each year. Referrals for consideration come from the City of Albuquerque/Bernalillo after School Programs throughout the city and county. Children are selected based on certain criteria and available funding.
 
This years event will be on Sunday, December 12, 2021, and is often the only Christmas these children will have.
 
This has been a successful event for the past (26) years, because of community partners like you. Please consider sponsoring one or more children this year at a mere $100.00 per child. Your donation is tax-deductible. Donations can be made at crimestoppersnm.com (select Cops for Kids from the drop down menu) or you can contact Sonya Marquez at smarquez@cabq.gov or 505-917-6436.

Cops for Kids

Cops for Kids is a program that provides children (ages 6 to 11) with the opportunity to spend the day with a police officer. The children are given a $100 Walmart gift card to purchase clothing and other necessities.

 

Children who are selected are nominated through APS Title 1 Homeless Project and local Law Enforcement. To help as many families as possible, if a family has received assistance through Cops for Kids in previous years, they are not eligible to participate in future events.

 

This has always been a successful event because of the officers and numerous volunteers who have donated their time to give back to their community.

 

Officers come from the Albuquerque Police Department, Bernalillo County Sheriff’s Office, New Mexico State Police, Bosque Farms Police Department, University of New Mexico Police Department, Corrales Police Department and Laguna Police Department.

 

Donations

 

Cops for Kids is funded through donations, with every small donation Crime Stoppers and your local law enforcement can help brighten up a child’s holiday season. Please consider making a small donation. Your donation is tax deductible.
