The Burlington Store in Stratford was packed with kids Thursday night for its “Shop with a Cop” event.
The town of Stratford and Stratford police raised money so less fortunate children might have a brighter Christmas.
Each child received a $100 gift card and got to shop with an officer for gifts.
Victoria Jimenez, of Stratford, bought more for her family than she did for herself.
"It means a lot to me because my family right now is going through a really hard time,” she said.
Police say the number of children they were able to help doubled from last year.
