(London, KY) - On Saturday 12-15-2007 at 9:00 AM the Kentucky State Police Post 11 London held its annual Shop-With-A-Cop Program at the Corbin, KY Wal-Mart. The program, which operates solely from donations, was able to help 13 children have a better Christmas.
The children started the event with cupcakes and drinks provided by Wal-Mart and Subway. After a group picture the children began their shopping experience with State Police Officers and employees of Wal-Mart. The Children were allowed to purchase a mixture of toys and clothing.
The children, recommended by various agencies, were chosen from a list of needy families.
Kentucky State Police Posts across the state hold this type of event each year to help those less fortunate and to boaster a positive image of police officers for the children.
