Shop with a cop

CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL) - Shopping for school supplies is always fun, but how about getting ready for the new year with the help of a police officer?

100 kids in need were taken shopping for school supplies by Cedar Rapids Police Officers at K-mart. The event was helped put on by Families Helping Families of Iowa.

Each child was given 100 dollars to buy supplies and clothing as they get ready for fall.

"I got clothes, and shoes, and new t-shirts and socks," said Adonis Wyett.
"To provide a positive relationship or interaction with a police officer, this is a great way to do that," said Cecie Stark, VP Familes Helping Families.

Funds were raised by the Cedar Rapids Police Protective Association.
