Thirty-three lo­cal chil­dren re­ceived a spe­cial treat Thurs­day, af­ter re­ceiv­ing gifts thanks to Walmart and the Cov­ing­ton Po­lice De­part­ment, New­ton County 911 Cen­ter, Ge­or­gia State Pa­trol and the Cov­ing­ton Fire De­part­ment dur­ing their an­nual Shop with a Hero event.

Pre­vi­ously called Shop with a Cop, this year ex­panded to in­clude more city emer­gency work­ers.

Each child got to spend $100 on gifts for them­selves. The gift cards were pro­vided from funds from the Cov­ing­ton Po­lice Who Care and a grant from Wal-Mart.
