Thanks to the holiday spirit of local police and the largess of the community, the Christmases of 14 Anderson County children were jump started Saturday through a program dubbed Shop With A Cop.
One of the children, Brianna, 12, was too ill to participate in the program, so her brother Blake, 10, filled in for her.
“She’s really sick and has been in the hospital a lot,” Blake said. “I wanted to do this for her. I made a list of things that I thought she’d like and would make her happy. And I added a few things for myself.”
