Shop with a Cop

Once, again as the holidays approach, the City of Bolivar is beginning its campaign to collect funds to support our “Shop with a Cop” program. We partner with our local Wal-Mart by collecting funds that then go to help children in Polk County have Christmas. It is a worthwhile and beneficial program. Be assured that 100% of the money collected goes toward the kids in “our” community. We invite you to join us in this wonderful endeavor and extend our sincere appreciation for any help you can give. You may direct any donation to the Bolivar Police Department, attn: Shop with a Cop. PO Box 9 or 211 W. Walnut, Bolivar, MO 65613. Shop with a Cop will take place on December 9th and 10th from 4:00-8:00 pm. For more information contact us at 417.326.2489
