ALBANY, GA (WALB) –Fifteen lucky kids were treated to lunch and shopping while spending some quality time with Dougherty County Sheriff's deputies Monday.

This is the sixth year the office has hosted the shop with a Sheriff program. Deputies were each assigned a child. They got together for lunch at Ryan's.

Then it was off to K-mart where each child got a gift card to buy whatever they wanted.

For some kids the necessities were more important than toys

"You know, a game cant keep you warm in the winter so if you chose clothes over a game you are making the right choice," said Rosallia Hudson.

The program is sponsored by the Exchange club, and Sheriff Kevin Sproul says several organizations contribute to this event.

It's all to help kids who wouldn't normally have a much of a Christmas.
