About 20 students across the district got to pair up with law enforcement for a $350 shopping spree ahead of the Christmas holiday.

Law enforcement from Pleasant View, Ashland City, Kingston Springs, and the local sheriff’s office acted as Santa’s elves in providing the children with toys, coats, shoes, and basic necessities.

After all the shopping fun, the children and their families were treated to a pizza party with the officers at Vuocolo’s Italian Restaurant.
