The Valdosta Police Department's sixth annual Shop with a Cop event kicks off Monday at 7 p.m. at the Walmart on Perimeter Road.
The kids were chosen based on need, mostly from officer's who met them in the line of duty.
Each child will be chaperoned by a police officer buddy, whom they'll have the chance to get to know.
"With Shop with a Cop, they actually got a chance to hold that police officer's hands, walk through the aisles, learn about his or her career, 'Why did you choose to be a police officer?' Kids then get to see us as just people, just like they are."
This year, every child will get $169.90 to spend anyway they choose.
