Albany -- Not many people can say they've hit someone from law enforcement in the face and live to laugh about it. People at the Lee County Wal-Mart let officers from the Leesburg Police Department have it Saturday.

These officers didn't mind. It was the annual "Pie a Cop" event by the department to raise money and toys for foster children this holiday season. The deal was whoever brought an unwrapped new toy or made a $5 donation got to smash a pie in a police officer's face. More than 400 children have gotten toys from the fundraiser over the past four years.

"We're out here to give back to the county and the city, and make children's Christmas happy. Officers out here donating their time. We're really enjoying it, believe it or not, we're enjoying it," said Charles Moore.

If you want to smash a pie in a cop's face head out next Saturday, November 25 between 11 to 2 at the Jenkins Supermarket in Leesburg. Organizers remind you to bring a toy or donation to help give the foster children Happy Holidays.
