As Told to Good360 by El Paso Cops Helping Kids

El Paso Cops Helping Kids is a nonprofit organization that is dedicated to creating positive ties and relationships between the youth of our surrounding communities and El Paso Police Officers. Our mission is to help inspire kids through positive reinforcement so they can flourish within a supportive community. Our program selects children from underprivileged families in the Socorro School District to partner with an El Paso Police Officer who helps the students pick out clothing and school supplies from the donation drive.

Thanks to donations of children toys, children in three counties received backpacks filled with school supplies. As another element of the program, students take a field trip to one of our local police departments to observe the facility, ask questions and interact with police officers. Our programs have reached thousands of disadvantaged children and even more police officers willing to volunteer. These children and their families were overjoyed to receive these items since they could not afford them. Thank you Good360 and your partners for helping us emphasize the importance of education to these children in the community.
