Cops with kids

The spirit of giving is alive here inside of Walmart when local law enforcement brings an early Christmas to the boys and girls club.

Money can be tough for many families, especially during the holiday season.

The Tennessee Highway Patrol, the Jackson Police Department and the Madison County Sheriff's Office teamed up to help.

“Money gets hard sometimes we go from having a little bit of money and then around Christmas time when it gets really short going from here to there dinner wise and stuff like that,” says Tommy Killingsworth

Local law enforcement took 23 kids from the boys and girls club on a holiday shopping trip.

Some of the kids say it was an experience of a lifetime.

“It's really exciting because i've never done anything like this and spend a lot of money on toys and things I can get from Walmart,” says Trinity Stevenson.

Each student got 225 dollars to spend on anything they wanted, from toys, to clothes, and even food.

“I got something for my sisters, and i'm going to get something for my grandparents,” says Keilan White.

“jackets, food, and entertainment,” says Briara Long.

The kids and local law enforcement are done shopping and ready to check out and they all say it was a wonderful time.
