Shop with a Cop extended its reach to the Banquette Independent School District Monday as 20 students shopped at Walmart with members of area law enforcement.

Organizers said the district was able to be included for the first time thanks to donations.

"Giving," Judge Hermilo Pena said. "I think that it is very important that the children realize that there are people out there who are willing to share with them their good fortune."

Tuesday is the last day of this year's Shop with a Cop program. Organizers are currently making plans for 2018 and they are already accepting donations.
