Cops and Barbers 2019
Our 2019 event was held on August 18 and 19 at four locations in Columbus, with over 1,000 children receiving school supplies thanks to our premier sponsor, AEP Ohio. Boys received haircuts, and girls made friendship bracelets with female officers. The friendship bracelets actually turned out to be a huge hit with boys (and parents) as well.
Special thanks to our partner sites Adams Community Center, St. Stephens Community House, Gladden Community House, and Reeb Avenue Center. We could not have done it without our premier sponsor, AEP Ohio, and the tremendous support of the Columbus Division of Police. In addition, we would like to extend our deepest appreciation to our other sponsors, Fraternal Order of Police of Ohio, Inc; Fraternal Order of Police, Capital City Lodge #9; 614 Barber Supply; Walmart; Big Lots; The City of Columbus Recreation and Parks; Trendy Charlie; and the many other groups and individuals who devoted their time and energy to helping us make this special event such a huge success. Thank you!
