Christmas came early for some area kids Sunday at the seventh annual “Shop with a Player” event.

Meijer was filled to the brim with Santa hats and smiling faces, as the Notre Dame football team took a break from their playoff practices to spend their day with deserving area youth.

The kids were given a $100 shopping spree provided by the Kelly Cares Foundation and the Pokagon Band.

The Irish were there to help make the tough decisions -- and more importantly, they gave some special kids a memorable day.
