Albany -The Southwest Georgia Exchange Club presented the Dougherty County Sheriff's Department with a $400 check on Tuesday. With the money, eight children will be able to "shop with a cop" for Christmas, spending $50 any way they choose.

Lt. Lance Montgerard says, "I have two small boys of my own and just to know that somebody out there is willing to go through and do this for people who might not have the opportunity to do it is just outstanding."

The children who will receive the money were picked by school officials and the department of family and children services. Last year, the exchange club gave $200 to the Sheriff's Department for shop with a cop, and they hope to double their donation to the cause again next Christmas.
