Fort Worth police officers and some North Texas kids got to go on a shopping spree.

Anonymous donors partnered with Walmart to help kids who may not have presents under their Christmas tree.

Fifty children were given $100 to spend on whatever they wanted in the store.

Most of them bought toys but some of them decided to use their money to buy for others, including one child who bought perfume and cologne for her parents for Christmas.

According to Officers, such events give them a chance to do their hearts good. FWPD Ofc. Brad Perez said, "It's a win, win for both of us. The officers are very excited to be here and be a part of this just as much as the children are and it makes us feel good to be able to reach out to the community and share a moment like this. A humanizing moment for this profession."

Walmart managers say they want to be able to give more kids the chance at a shopping spree next year and plan to expand the Shop with a Cop program.
