Park District Police bring holiday cheer to children in Springfield
SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (WICS) —
Springfield Park District Police officers delivered holiday cheer to children with disabilities.
Kids received toys from officers and Santa.
Officers have been collecting toys all year long for the children.
The toys were donated from stores in the community and from officers.
Officers said they had a great time and so did the kids.
“I don't get to do this very often and I was really excited and Santa made my day made me happy,” 16-year-old Delene Samson said.
This is the second year for the event and Springfield Park Police hope to make it an annual event.
In the spring, officers hope to hold a bike give away for the kids.
