MARANA, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Students from the Marana Unified School District spent Saturday with the Marana Police Department and Marana Police Volunteers for their first "Shop with a Volunteer/Shop with a Cop" event.

Thirty-five students of all ages, chosen based on need, went on a Kohl's shopping spree in Marana. 

"Kohl's was fantastic," said Chief Terry Rozema, the Marana Police Chief. " They really rolled out the red carpet."

According to a news release, funding for the shopping spree was raised a few months ago at the Pride for the Patch golf tournament for first responders, military, and military veterans.

In addition to the funds raised by the police department, Kohl's provided Kohl's Cash and 25 percent off everything in the store.

In 2016, the Marana Police Department Volunteer Foundation presented a check for $12,377 to the Banner University Medical Center pediatric unit.

    Dozens came from as far as Flagstaff to Nogales in honor of the thousands of children waiting to be reunited with their parents. They may have been a small group, but they had a big message. "We want to make sure that those kids still get back to their families," said Christie Black, who traveled from Mesa for the vigil. Black and Julie Jorgenson never met in person until Saturday.
