Toy Lift Charities continued its holiday work with the annual Toy Lift Kids Cop Holiday Shop.

Children from around Central Virginia got a chance to go shopping at Toys-R-Us in Albemarle County.

Members of the Albemarle, Fluvanna and Nelson County sheriff’s departments teamed up with the children and helped them spend $150 dollars on toys.

The kids were chosen by teachers involved in the Toy Lift and the former president of Toy Lift explained how they were selected.

“We asked them to look for kids who could really use a positive experience with a police officer and maybe that they've had a negative experience in the past or it may be that they just need a mentor, but really deserve a positive experience,” says Cindy Payne.

This year, 12 children were selected for the event.
