Sikeston, MO crews help dozens of area children have merry Christmas

SIKESTON, MO (KFVS) -

Police, fire and EMT crews in Sikeston, Missouri joined in a very special call on Wednesday, December 23.

They helped dozens of local children have a merry Christmas.

The Public Safety crews took more than 80 children with them for their annual Shop with a Cop event.

"The reason why I am doing this is for the kids," said Barry Morgan, Scott County detective. "The smiles on their face, they glow a little bit. I tried to get them hyped up this morning, just to get them a little excited, excited as I am about it. I feel like when I woke up this morning, I felt rewarded that I could be a part of this."

Each child received $75, which came from money donated by the community.
