On Saturday, December 3, 2016, Skydive Perris and Perris Indoor Skydiving partnered with the Menifee and Perris Police Departments to kick off the annual “Shop with a Cop” event.

The annual event is an opportunity to spread Christmas cheer, assist children in need and deepen the connection between local law enforcement and the Perris community.

35 area children participated in this year’s event which kicked off with a patrol car ride from from Perris Station to the Perris Walmart. Each child received a $125 Walmart gift card which they used to purchase Christmas gifts for their family and friends. Deputies and local volunteers accompanied the children as they selected their holiday gifts.

After the shopping spree, the children and deputies were invited to Skydive Perris for a luncheon around the pool. Following lunch, the children were treated to a demonstration by the Riverside County Sheriffs’ K-9 Team and a surprise visit from Santa and Mrs. Claus!

Skydive Perris was proud to help sponsor this year’s event. Our thanks go out to all of our local law enforcement officers and the other community members and organizations who helped make the event such a success. We wish everyone in the Perris community a very happy Holiday Season!
