Kmart in Marietta was filled with cops Saturday morning, but they weren't there to fight crime. Instead, they were shopping.

The Washington County Sheriff's Department and Marietta College Campus Police helped bring Christmas to children with families that could use a little help this holiday season.

With everything from toys to a new winter coat, these children got to fill their shopping carts with a variety of new items.

The cops and volunteers say it's an experience that benefits them just as much as the children.

    overall i think its a good program that helps the children see the police in a more positive light.

    just wondering why the shop with a cop is never advertised until after the event why is it not published for family's who are less fortuniet to sign up for. i thought these programs were suppose to be for the families who needed it not for who they know!!!!!!
