Santa Cop

Santa 2015

Santa Cop is an event the PPD has been coordinating for unfortunate children in our community for 16 years. The officers and staff collect monetary donations, as well as, hold community fundraisers throughout October, November and December to purchase toys and supplies for this event. The officers also go out during these months and host toy drives at local establishments throughout town. Several local businesses and organizations graciously donate food and drinks as well. Santa Cop is scheduled in mid-December and is held at the Memorial Building. Children from the community come out and enjoy an afternoon of fun with the PPD and SO staff, who have generously donated their time to help out. Santa Clause is present to hand out gifts and take pictures. There are also refreshments and sleigh rides for the kids to enjoy.

Our mission is to provide Christmas presents to less fortunate kids in our community. This year was an absolute success, Santa Cop provided over five hundred children with a goody bag, lunch, hot chocolate, cookies and a gift from Santa Clause.
