Children treated to shopping with Sheriff

Posted: Updated:

Some underprivileged children got a special surprise Friday as the Dougherty County Sheriff's Office took time to give back to the community.

Sheriff Kevin Sproul and more than a dozen of his employees hosted the annual Shop with the Sheriff event.

22 kids enjoyed a meal at Tokyo Restaurant then went to K-Mart to select Christmas presents for their families and themselves.       

The Sheriff says many of his deputies came in on their day off to take part because they love helping make sure kids have a Merry Christmas.

Tokyo Restaurant donated the meal, and K-Mart gave the kids a discount. All the money to pay for the gifts was donated.
