ZEIGLER, IL (KFVS) -

Christmas came early for some kids in Zeigler, Illinois on Tuesday.

For the second year in a row, officers from the town's police department met up with area families to do a little holiday shopping.

Police Chief Ben Burkhamerchief said the “Shop with a Cop” program is a chance to teach everyone what the season is all about.

"Its always better to give than to receive," Burkhamerchief said. "It's just kind of a first hand lesson with them that the joy of actually doing the giving is what the season is all about. Its about giving not getting."
