LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) -- It doesn't take much to show a child they are not alone. Twenty-five students from Roosevelt Perry Elementary School in Louisville got the opportunity of a lifetime to walk through a store and pick out whatever they wanted.
Corrections Officers from Metro Corrections downtown raised thousands of dollars for the 2012 "Coat-A-Kid" program. They were able to raise $500 more than last year giving kids even more opportunities to get the things they need and the things they want.
Most of the students from Roosevelt Perry are on free and reduced lunch. The school is the third most impoverished school in the state.
Officers raised $3,400 through silent auctions.
