Another group spent some time Saturday shopping with kids. It was the 17th Annual Cops and Kids Christmas event.
Saturday morning around 19 families including 36 children met with the Potter County Law Enforcement Association and Fraternal Order Police Lodge to do a little Christmas shopping at the Walmart at I-27 and Georgia. Each child received 150 dollars and was paired with one officer as they shopped for items they both needed and wanted.
"We have one-hundred and fifty dollars and a certain amount of that goes for toys, but we're also looking for clothing, things that they may not have - socks, underwear, stuff like that," said Sheriff Steve White with the Potter County Sheriff's Department. "We try to push the clothes, but of course they want some nice toys and stuff like that, so we try to go both ways."
Many of the kids chosen for Saturday's shopping spree were recommended by teachers at their schools.
