Some elementary school students got the chance to do some fun holiday shopping Saturday in Lexington.

It's all thanks to the 'Shop With a Cop' program.

Officers volunteered their time to take kids shopping at Meijer.

The annual event is organized by the fraternal order of police.

Schools and police officers nominate children to take part in the program.

Kids are given gift cards to use to buy holiday gifts for themselves and family members.

Volunteers say its a great way to give back to the community in the holiday season.

This is the 18th year for the 'Shop With a Cop' program.
