Shop With A Cop

I just got done taking my sister three kids to our local shop with a cop night.

It was really heart-warming to see first hand all the people that were willing to go the extra mile to make sure these kids and families had a nice holiday.

The local police department gave each kid $100 to pick presents at our Walmart. Then Walmart employees had donated to give each family a $20 gift card and the store manager provided each family with food for a Christmas dinner.

There's no real point to this, other than it kinda made my day for my nieces and nephew 😊

That's sweet.  I have seen that program before and am glad it exists.

It was totally worth it. I help my sister out as much as I can, but this year has been a little rough for us too.

I'm just glad they will have a nice Christmas

Me too!!

I didn't even know this was a thing until I made the mistake of going Christmas shopping last year on the night they were doing shop with a cop lol.

But when my sis was stressing about Christmas this year I told her to call about the shop with a cop program.

That's sweet 🙂

They let my youngest niece, who is three, shop with them tonight. She was so excited, kept trying to put everything she saw in the cart lol.

lol I would not want to be in the store then either!  It was a nice thing you did telling her about this.  I'm sure she and her kids are so happy. :)
