Chelsea State Bank continues its support of Shop with a Cop this holiday season with a $4,000 donation. Shop with a Cop is sponsored by the Western Washtenaw County Sheriff’s Department, and local police officers.
“As the local community bank, we want to do all we can to help the families in our communities celebrate the holidays,” stated Chelsea State Bank President David Schaible. “Knowing that families are struggling during the holidays,our employees and customers donated to Shop with a Cop to help with gifts for the children.I am so proud of our employees who give tirelessly of their time…they make us all proud to be community bankers.”
During October and November, Chelsea State Bank employees and customers donated to the Shop with a Cop event that took place on December 6 at the Jackson Road Meijer in Ann Arbor. During the event, each child is furnished with $100-$150 to spend on gifts. Each enrolled child also receives a winter coat, hat, gloves, blanket, backpack, toothbrush, and toothpaste.
The program further provides participating children with $100-$125 in gift cards to local Washtenaw County restaurants and a $25 gas card.
The Sheriff’s Office has facilitated the Shop with a Cop program in Western Washtenaw County since 2002. Funding for the event is provided by generous donations from the corporate community like Chelsea State Bank. Each year law enforcement officers team up with nearly 200 youth from the county who are in need. For many children, if not for Shop with a Cop, they would not have a holiday celebration.

“This is our second year collecting for Shop with a Cop,” said Chelsea State Bank Loan Operations Teresa Beegle. “We have a Bank Relations Committee that looks for ways we can make a difference in our communities. When we learned about Shop with a Cop last year and how it helped children in our communities have a happier holiday, we were in. Last year we raised $3,000, and this year we raised $4,000. We are very proud of everyone who helped and are already working on ways to increase donations next year. Both Kim Hieber and Felicia Mann from Chelsea State Bank represented us at the actual shop on December 6.”
