Tomorrow is the big day. On Tuesday, December 3, 2019, the Shop with a Cop and Firefighter event will take place in Texarkana.

During this event, a child will be given $100 to shop for Christmas gifts with a police officer at Wal-Mart on Arkansas Blvd.  Officers from all over Texarkana will line up at the Bi-State at 8:30AM and convoy with lights and sirens to Wal-Mart.  This year, with the continuous support of local contributors, 150 children from here in Texarkana will receive something special this holiday season.
