Mountaineer Casino donates $1,000 to Hancock County Shop with a Cop

December 13, 2017-Mountaineer Casino partnered with the Hancock County Deputy Sheriff’s Association and donated $1,000 towards their Shop with a Cop program. The goal of the Shop with a Cop program is that every child in Hancock County will have a great Holiday season. The Shop with a Cop program is in its 30th year and has served over 8,650 children in the area. The money donated will go towards the officers shopping on Sunday December 17.

DFC Patrick Hoder states “The goal was to raise $10,000 and the donation from Mountaineer Casino has put us above our goal. We have 120 children that range in age from birth to 17 years old that will benefit from the funds raised this year.” Mountaineer Casino GM Bill Winkelreid added “We are extremely happy to participate as we think that giving back to our local community is so important-especially during this time of year.”

Applications for participation begin in November each year. Monetary donations are accepted year round for this program. Donations can be dropped off at PO BOX 2206 in Weirton.  For more information about the program, please contact the HC Sheriff’s Office at 304-564-4100.
