Each officer was assigned one of 100 children to shop with earlier Thursday, thanks to the generous donations of the Israel Idonjie Foundation.

"We bring the kids out, they shop with the police officers and it's a good day," said Officer Smith in a video posted to social media.

After a morning of bowling and a hearty lunch, each of the children received $100 to spend at Target on Christmas presents for their families, or new clothes for themselves.
