Shreveport, La — Santa took a break from toy making in the North Pole to visit Shreveport Monday morning for the kick off of the 28th annual Operation Santa Claus, put on by the Bossier Sheriff's Office, Shreveport Police and Shreveport Fire Department.
The program allows the three law enforcement to nominate kids to receive presents from the program who would otherwise not receive any presents.
This year Operation Santa Claus is hoping to bring toys to over a thousand kids this season, but that could be hard because they are starting out with less resources than ever before.
And that's why Santa and his law enforcement helpers are asking for the publics help. They need donations of all types; cash and presents. They give out gifts to kids ages 0 to 12, so there is a wide range of presents.
