BROWN COUNTY (NBC 26) -- Every law enforcement agency in Brown County participates in Shop with A Cop.

The program provides children in need with $150 in donated spending money. Then, the kids are paired with an officer or deputy to go shopping for Christmas gifts for their family at Walmart.

It costs about $20,000 per year to run the program, so organizers say they're grateful for the support of NBC 26's Three Degree Guarantee.

"It goes to show the partnership in the community, and it means the world to us to have an organization such as yourself partner with us and help this program succeed,” said De Pere Police Dept. Community Resource Officer Jedd Bradley.

Shop with A Cop is celebrating its 25th year of making the holidays brighter for about 180 children and their families. They accept donations and NBC26 is looking forward to adding to that tally through the Three Degree Guarantee. Click here to learn more.
