Itís time once again to extend Christmas cheer. On Tuesday, December 13th, 2011 the annual Shop with a Cop event will take place. During this event a needy child will be given $100 to shop for Christmas gifts with a police officer at Wal-Mart on Arkansas Blvd. Officers from all over Texarkana will line up at the Bi-State at 7:30am and convoy with lights and sirens to Wal-Mart. This year, with the continuous support of our local contributors, over 60 children from here in Texarkana will receive something special this holiday season.
