12-year-old Lindsay Burger shows Clay County Deputy Sheriff Nick Workman a shirt she liked during the annual Shop With A Cop program at Walmart Thursday night. Lindsay is the daughter of John and Mandy Burger. Through community donations from local churches, civic organizations, businesses and individuals, the program was able to help 86 children this holiday season.

Maybe people should teach children the true meaning of Christmas, and not worry about what they are buying. If you don't have the money , you don't have the money.

you must be one of those who have filled your pockets with money and havent learned the true value of christmas yourself, didnt the 3 wise men give gifts to baby jesus and his parents??? I gave and i feel better about myself about helping a kid in need . i think a little less greed from people like you might make this world a better place to live,,,,,

yes you are right, giving to ones in need is great but giving to ones whom are to lazy to get off their butts, well by ur screen name I'm sure know how that is. read the entire story and you will also find that Jesus and his parents did not ask or expect these gifts you are refering to.

I'm also glad you gave to feel better about yourself! Most would call that selfish but you can call it whatever you want.

thank you for your christian response. Merry Christmas to you

Great job Nick........the Shop With A Cop program is one of our comunity's best assets to help the children in need at Christmas time......the time of giving of oneself without asking for anything in return.

Merry Christmas to all!
