The Ashland Police Department is taking 16 children from low-income homes on a holiday shopping spree.

The "Shop With a Cop 2013" event will be held at 8 a.m. Saturday, Dec. 21, at Walmart, 1360 Center Drive, Medford. Each child will be paired with an officer or department support staff member and will receive a $90 gift card to spend on themselves and their families.

The program is designed help give the kids a happier holiday and give them a chance to interact with officers in a positive way.
