VANCOUVER – On Saturday (Dec. 10), the Vancouver Police Officer’s Guild (VPOG) and Nautilus, Inc. hosted a holiday shopping event for kids in need. This was the 18th year combining the Nautilus, Inc. Holiday Helper event with the VPOG Shop With A Cop.

Thanks to Nautilus Inc. and Street Parking Inc. for their generous donations to support the event and to WalMart (9000 NE Hwy 99) for hosting this year’s event.
Additional volunteers included staff from the Police Activities League of SW Washington (PAL), King’s Way Christian School’s middle school leadership class and the Vancouver Police Neighbors On Watch.
