Needy Desert Sands Unified School District students will be given the chance to buy Christmas gifts with Indio Police Department officers Tuesday at Walmart.

The police department, in partnership with the Indio store and school district, identified middle school students in need and will provide them with a “generous” gift card to spend on gifts for their entire family.

Approximately $2,500 was raised between Walmart and individuals from the police department, according to officials.

The Shop with a Cop event aims to give the students an opportunity to engage with the police department in a positive way and bring some more joy to their holidays.
