Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, KY. (WDRB) -- Louisville Metro Corrections employees are helping make the holidays a little brighter for some local children.

Corrections employees shopped hand-in-hand with 25 students from Roosevelt-Perry Elementary School.  It's part of the Coat-A-Kid program.  Corrections and the Fraternal Order of Police Lodge 77 raised more than $3400 during a silent auction.

Kelly Feiock with Metro Corrections explains, "The correction officers love it doing the shopping trip -- they get to be personally involved with the children and know they're making a difference in the community."

Officers used the money to buy the kids new coats, mittens, and other items as well as a toy or two.
