Terre Haute police officers spent the morning at Walmart helping give area children some of the presents on their Christmas lists, whose families otherwise would not be able to afford them.
   
But it's not all about gift giving, the event is also aimed at letting kids interact with the police officers, and make sure they're comfortable around them.
   
"Just joy because I'm in a have had as good of a Christmas without this program. Without the community support that provides all the donations for this we couldn't do it either, so I want to thank everyone for donating to this and making it happen for our community," said Terre Haute Police Chief John Plasse. "This is the Christmas season and it's a spirit of giving and it really shows through with this."

The event was held by the Fraternal Order of Police #85, and students from Rose-Hulman were also on hand to help.
   
Over 200 kids were able get in the holiday spirit, and take home some presents.
