LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — Firefighters in Lafayette have spent most of the year working to be able to take kids shopping. Saturday a group of kids met at Lafayette Station 9 and made their way to Meijer.

Each firefighter paired up with a kid or a small group of kids. They took them around the store and got them whatever they needed for winter.

They were also able to get games and toys. Luis Nunez said spending one-on-one time with firefighters was a cool experience. 

"It's a very special gift that most kids and teenagers don't know about in the community, some kids don't have nothing for Christmas and some do but with these firefighters they make kids feel happy going shopping with them," said Nunez.
