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.
