CONWAY, AR - Conway's "Shop with a Cop" program is making Christmas bright for some less fortunate children.
About 45 children joined officers with the Conway Police Department (CPD) on Sunday at a local Walmart store for their $100 shopping sprees.
The event is put on each year by the Martin McDaniel Fraternal Order of Police and is sponsored by generous donors in the community.
A CPD spokesperson says officers had a wonderful time and the smiles and hugs made it all worthwhile.
Some children who had signed up for the program were unable to make it because of slick roads. The CPD says they will each be called and given a new shopping date.
