Shop With a P.A.L.

Annual Shop With a PAL Project 2023 will be at the Target store, 2004 El Camino Real, Santa Clara:

The Santa Clara Police Activities League is continuing our annual community outreach program designed to spread holiday cheer.  The program, entitled “Shop With a PAL,” will pair volunteers and 25 PAL athletes for a holiday shopping spree at our local Target store.  The endeavor has attracted a number of Santa Clara partners to include the Santa Clara Police Officer’s Association (SCPOA), Target Store, Royal Coach Tours, and members of Santa Clara’s City Council will be helping us this year for shopping with the kids.  “Shop With a PAL” is a continuation of Santa Clara P.A.L.’s efforts to find beneficial ways to reach out to members of the Santa Clara community.

Santa Clara Police Activities League Coaches will identify 5 children from Judo, Soccer, Softball, Wrestling, and BMX who would benefit from the “Shop With a PAL” program.  The kids have been asked to arrive at the Target Department Store located at 2004 Camino Real no later that 9:00 am on Saturday, December 9th.  Upon arrival the kids will be paired with their “Shopping PAL”.  Each child will be given $200.00 to purchase Christmas gifts for themselves and their family members. The kids will have until 10:30am to make their purchases.  At 10:45 a.m. Royal Coach Tours bus service will transport the kids from Target to the Santa Clara Police Department (located at 601 El Camino Real, Santa Clara, CA) where the kids and volunteers will be treated to breakfast waffles made by Cheryl Walsh of Sean’s K9’s.  The menu consists of Belgian waffles, hot chocolate, and coffee.  Following breakfast, Santa Clara PD personnel will also provide “wrapping stations,” so that the kids will have an opportunity to wrap their presents.
