HEWLETT, Long Island (WABC) -- Forget making lists - more than 100 kids got to pick their own presents Saturday on Long Island.
They did it with help from 'Project Thank a Cop.'
Organizers paired each kid with a police officer. They had $100 to spend on themselves and $50 to shop for young patients at Cohen Children's Medical Center.
The event began last year as a one-time thing, but it was such a hit that organizers brought it back.
