Y.A.L.E. School Northfield students donated 428 of their “Y.A.L.E. Bucks” rewards to “Shop with a Cop,” an event where uniformed police officers and volunteers assist under-privileged children with their holiday shopping, free of charge to the child and their families.
Our staff (and their loved ones) turned the donated Y.A.L.E. Bucks into real cash which was given to Shop with a Cop. We nominated three Y.A.L.E. Northfield students to be included in the program and two of them were selected to go holiday shopping with a police officer from City of Northfield Police Department!
Students Jadah Butler and Anthony Platt were chosen to go shopping for holiday items with the officers. Our thanks to the Northfield PD and commend them for their ongoing community efforts to partner with schools in the community like Y.A.L.E.
We would also like to recognize the Y.A.L.E. students who generously donated their hard-earned “Y.A.L.E. Bucks” so that other children could have this great opportunity in the season of giving.
