Some lucky children in Midland were able to mark some items off their Christmas list.

To top it all off, they got shop with a cop.

It all went down at Walmart.

Law enforcement officers gave each participating child $100.

They could use that money to buy whatever they wanted.

Paula Cox says the children that took part, have been through a lot.

"Victims of a traumatic situation, whether it was trafficking or physical or sexual abuse. Some type of crime that was put upon them and they are going to be teamed up with an officer today with a $100 gift card," said Cox.

Law enforcement agencies do this every year.
