12346352_902601883126568_915576403331727882_nOn Tuesday Dec. 1, Members of the Orange Police Department participated in the Shop With A Cop program sponsored by the REACH Foundation at the AMF Lanes and Target in Milford.

Officers from all along the shoreline participated, including Lt. Max Martins, Detectives Mike Kosh, Harry Burke and Brian Petrucelli along with Officers Sean Murphy and Mike Luzzi from the OPD.

The kids and officers were treated to a round of bowling, a visit from the Southern CT. State University Basketball team and, of course, Santa Claus himself!

Each child received a gift card from Target to purchase items for themselves and their families.

This is the second year Orange has participated in the event. Lt. Martins said it was one of the most rewarding programs he has been involved with.

All of us here are happy to support such worth while programs.

Note: An Orange Live reader whose children participated said, “They are still talking about it.”
