Shop With A Cop in Thomasville took off as a success. Children gathered from the Department of Family and Children, as well as a local abuse shelter, to team up with police officers with a goal to get everything on their wish lists for Christmas. One thing the children weren't counting on were new winter coats.
SGT Ricky Singletary with the Thomasville Police Department said, "What we did this year, we bought each participant a jacket and JC Penny was real good about helping us out, and CNS Cable donated money to buy the jackets from JC Penny at a discount."
With money raised from local businesses, each child was given $100 to spend at Wal-Mart.
