HOUSTON — Through the kindness of a few good men and some goodhearted athletes, 40 kids from several struggling families had the chance Tuesday to shop ’til they dropped.

Houston Police Department Chief Art Acevedo joined the athletes as they welcomed kids from disadvantaged neighborhoods in Houston to participate in the “Shop with a Cop, Shop with a Jock” holiday extravaganza.

Law enforcement was able to show the children a different side of the badge — the fun side.
