[pulledquote]“It’s for the kids, we will be there!”[/pulledquote]The Middlefield Police and Fire Departments held the second annual “Middlefield Car Show” event as a fund raiser for the “Shop with a Cop” program. The event was well attended and raised as $4,955.

The “Shop with a Cop” program is a unique program that provides resources for Middlefield area children to holiday shop for themselves and their families. The children get to holiday shop with a member from the Middlefield Police and Fire Departments. The “Shop With A Cop” program is very special to us in that it brings holiday joy to Middlefield area families that otherwise might not be able to celebrate with food and gifts”.

I want to deeply thank everyone that attended the car show. The weather was great, a short rain shower did not stop folks from visiting, then the sun came out and we had a beautiful day for the event. All of the proceeds raised at the car show will support the Shop with a Cop program. The Shop with a Cop program operates solely upon fund raisers and donations.

Special “Thank You” to Carl Hornung, Dennis Parton, Mike Davison, Middlefield Fire Department Chief Bill Reed, and the Middlefield Fire Department Ladies Auxiliary for their participation of coordinating the car show. There were Hot Rod Car enthusiasts that came from as far as Pennsylvania.

“When people learned that the proceeds from the Middlefield Car Show went to the Shop with a Cop program”, they said, “It’s for the kids, we will be there!” This is so heartwarming, that people from all over are so willing to support our community programs.

The “Shop with a Cop” program is a wonderful program that the Middlefield Police Department intends to hold every year. Donations make the program possible. “I would like to thank all of the sponsors of the Shop with a Cop program.” “We hold this program close to our hearts and it means a lot to us, if it was not for your generous donations we would not have been able to offer the program to the community.” If you would like to provide resources for the Middlefield Police Department “Shop with a Cop” program, please call Chief Ed Samec  (440) 632-5225
