Local cops shop with Eau Claire Co. kids in need

Eau Claire (WQOW) - -

Dozens of kids in Eau Claire County got a VIP shopping experience on Sunday.

There were 127 children that signed up to shop with a cop, as part of the annual Kids N' Cops event. The program allows underprivileged youth from around Eau Claire County to connect with local law enforcement.

Kids and officers gathered at Target in Eau Claire, and each child was given a budget. The Kids N' Cops program hosted a fundraiser earlier this year that provided the funds for this event.

"The beautiful part of Eau Claire and our community is that every penny is going directly to the kids. So, socks, underwear, snow boots and snow pants, all the essentials that the kids need, we are meeting those needs today," said Eau Claire County Sheriff Ron Cramer.

The Kids N' Cops program is celebrating its 26th year.
