Albany -- Dougherty County Sheriff's Deputies made sure that 20 kids who might not have received any Presents, will have a Merry Christmas.

First grader Jada picked out a cash register game and a doll set, as she enjoyed Shop with the Sheriff.For the fourth year in a row, Dougherty County Sheriff's Deputies took children to K-Mart for a Christmas shopping spree.

 The Exchange Club of Southwest Georgia donated $2500 to pay for the gifts. K-Mart hosted the Shop, and gave them ten percent off the prices and gift wrapping.

The children were selected by school counselors and resource officers.

Gregory King, a fifth grader, picked out Pokeman toys for his brother. King said "it's not mostly about me, it's about my family that I care about."  

Captain Kevin Sproul Said "we feel like this is a necessity to let them know people in this community care about them. So they don't turn to the gangs. They don't turn to the drugs, they don't turn to the poor peers in the neighborhood."

Ryan's hosted the kids and the Sheriff's Deputies for lunch before they went shopping.
