LEE COUNTY, GA (WALB) – Close to a dozen officers took their days off to help kids shop for Christmas gifts.

It's all thanks to the Fraternal Order of police. Shop with a Cop is something they've made possible for years.

On Saturday 61-children received gift cards, some worth as much as $100 to go shopping at Walmart.

Some picked up bicycles, clothes and of course toys.

The fraternal order of police tries to do for children to make them understand that when they talk to officers they're talking to their friends, and we're there to do what we can to help, Rick Heim, Fraternal Order Of Police.

The Fraternal Order police raises money through donations and car washes, this year they handed out more than $3,000 in gift cards.
