The Edinburg Police Department is giving children something to smile about this holiday season.
They celebrated their 24th Annual ‘Blue Santa Christmas Toy Giveaway’. The police department made this event possible through toy drives and monetary donations at hospitals and stores across the city.
Edinburg’s police chief says this event is always a good opportunity to give back to the less fortunate.
Chief David White, Edinburg Police Department, “It’s part of our way to give back to the community. We have people that want to help the needy and we’re in a position with a community organization that helps facilitate that part where we can give back to the community.”
Over 3,000 toys were given away today by the Edinburg Police Department.
