Thomasville - The Thomasville Police Department has been raising money all year for the 2nd annual "Shop With a Cop" event. Children between ages seven and twelve can apply to shop with a cop on December 19th.
Every child selected will receive a $100.00 gift certificate to Wal-Mart and will be treated to Ryan's for dinner before the event.
Organizer Rachelle Denmark says, "It's a really wonderful feeling. It's great because we're interacting with the children in a positive way, it has nothing to do with crimes or anything that's occurring. It's strictly the officers and the children interacting at Christmastime and it's just a lot of fun."
Wal-Mart has donated $3,000 for the event. Children can apply at the Thomasville Police Department or submit an essay on what it would mean to shop with a cop to the Thomasville Times enterprise by December 10th.
