Local authorities brightened the day for some kids in need on Thursday.

Officers in Kenton County took children shopping at Walmart for the 'Cops and Kids' charity event.

The kids got to pick out clothes and Christmas gifts for themselves and their families.

However, police say they won't be allowed to open any toys until Christmas.

The event is paid for through donations from the community, the Ft. Wright Walmart and the Kenton County Fraternal Order of Police.
