More than 40 needy kids got a chance to roam the store for a gifts.

For many children anticipation of the day was very high. "They were very excited. They couldn't wait to get up, thinking of going to shop and what they were going to get," says Ana Moored , pastor of a Christian church in Albany. "We really appreciate the opportunity,"she says . The Shop with a Cop program is a nationwide project and has been active for more than 20 years in Albany.
