Over the weekend the Marana Police Department and the Marana Police volunteers held their first "Shop With A Volunteer/Cop" event.

According to a press release from Marana PD, the 35 students were chosen based on their need and include kids in high school and elementary school. 

The children accompanied officers to a Kohl's in Marana.  

The money was raised through the Pride for the Patch golf tournament for first responders, military, and military veterans. 

Marana Police say Kohl's also provided Kohl's cash and 25% off everything in the store.
