THOMASVILLE, GA (WALB) - Some Thomasville kids got to eat and shop with police officers Tuesday night.
It's the Thomasville police department's annual Shop with a Cop program.
11 kids chosen by the department of family and children services ate with police officers at Ryans, then later walked across to Wal-Mart for a 100 dollar shopping spree.
CNS cable, Wal-mart, the city of thomasville's employee benefit fund, and an individual donated money for the kids.
"Since we had some real generous people, we were able to buy all the siblings a gift as well. Some of the kids had several siblings so, and they might not normally get anything but we were able to buy them all a toy and we also bought the moms a little something as well," said Penny Hembree.
Every child not only gets a 100 dollar Wal-Mart gift card, they also get a warm winter coat and a pair of tennis shoes. Feedback
