Low-income children got to shop for the holiday season through the Shop With a Cop program from the Washtenaw County Sheriffs' office. 

Seven year old KeJuan Jenkins spotted a bike he had to have.

He was among the eighty kids who were given $125 to shop at the Meijer store in Belleville.  KeJuan said his previous bike broke so he needs a new one.

Police officers from all over Washtenaew County, including Eastern Michigan University participated in the event.
