2020 Shop-With-A-Cop Fundraiser…TURTLES HAVE ARRIVED!!

Our Annual SWAC Stuffed Animal Fundraiser that is usually held at the Firemen’s Memorial Festival in September will not take place due to the Festival being cancelled this year. However…we still have a lot of turtles to sell and all proceeds will go to the Gerrish Police & ACT NOW 2020 Shop-With-A-Cop Program.

Stop by the Gerrish Police Department at 3075 E. Higgins Lake Drive Monday – Friday from 8:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. to pick up your cute turtle(s). You can also call Julie at (989) 821-5207 Ext. 291 to place an order or email your order to jhill@gerrishpolice.org.

Our stuffed animals are provided by a very generous community donor each year. The stuffed animal fundraiser for SWAC started in 2007 with our first edition “Bear.” We try to have a different animal each year and each animal is tagged with information about the SWAC program. We have raised $12,067.00 with our stuffed animal fundraiser since its inception with last year being the most in one year raised from our 2019 “Christmas Seal” animal with the adorable logo hoodie!

We still have some of the 2019 Christmas Seal plush animals wearing
GTPD logo hoodies available for $10.00 each
