80 McIntosh County Children 'Shop With A Cop' For Christmas

Posted: Updated:
CHECOTAH, Oklahoma -

Law enforcement officers are making holiday wishes come true in McIntosh County.

Christmas music and police sirens help put everyone in the holiday spirit for the McIntosh County Law Enforcement Shop With A Cop event.

“You can like shop for whatever you want,” said 10-year-old Harrison July. 

Harrison has a list, a full cart, and also a full heart.

“This will be the best day of life. Best day of my life,” he said. 

Harrison and more than 20 other Checotah children shopped with officers from all over the county Thursday, picking out presents for Christmas.

“Usually we come to Walmart, my dad will look at things, but we never get them because we never have enough money,” said 9-year-old Bryan Creekmore. 

Thanks to many generous donations, each child got $300 to spend on toys and clothes.

A lot of the kids aren't just getting things for themselves, they're using their money to buy gifts for their family.

“It weighs heavy on your heart, but it's just a good feeling to know you're able to help,” said Detective Kevin Branscum. 

9-year-old Daniel Gregg bought his mom a necklace and coat for his sister.

“Because my sister needed a coat. And my mom, I wanted to give it to her because I love her,” Daniel said. 

Each child has a different story, but when it comes to appreciation, they are all the same.

In all, McIntosh County officers will take more than 80 children shopping this holiday season.
