FAYETTEVILLE, Ga. -- The Fayette County Sheriff's Office is providing a special Christmas for 35 local children.

The office's Shop with a Sheriff program, now in its sixth year, gives deputies the opportunity to take needy children on a holiday shopping spree at Walmart.

Most of each child's Shop with a Sheriff allotment goes to warm clothes. Any leftover money can be spent on toys.

Deputies said that, in the past, most children were more concerned about buying clothes and gifts for their siblings and parents than themselves.

This year's Shop with a Sheriff event will be held Dec. 15 at the Fayetteville Pavilion Walmart.

Anyone interested in making a tax deductible donation to Shop with a Sheriff can mail a check to P.O. Box 143606, Fayetteville, 30214. Donations can also be made online at shopwithasheriff.com.
