Santa Cops Need Help

Every child deserves to have a Christmas present.

Follow the link below to see the most stressed out Santa Cop that has ever shopped.  He still comes back every year!


Thirty years ago, a little girl asked a police officer where she could get a job in order to buy Christmas presents for her brother and sister. That conversation was the beginning of a non-profit organization, Christmas Crusade for Children Inc., that has provided Christmas gifts to over 220,000 children! Young adults now come up to officers and tell them they remember them bringing presents.


Santa Cops notice children who will not be having Christmas. They add their names to a list that is growing longer every year. A Santa Cop will ask each child what he or she would like for Christmas. Lately, an amazing number of children have requested clothes as well as toys.


Volunteers shop sales all year long to supply some of the gifts. There are toy drives. Other children are sponsored through the efforts of a local radio station. One day in December, the Santa Cops personally shop for any children remaining on the list. Even spending only $25 a child, the bill for this day can top $40,000!


When the police cars pull up with Christmas presents, excited children with big smiles run out to the car. It is a beautiful moment. All the time and effort spent to provide gifts is so worthwhile when those smiles show up. This is a chance for a positive interaction between officers and children. It can make a difference.


Every child deserves to have a Christmas present. Santa Cops need donations to continue shopping. Our minimum goal is to raise $20,000 in order to create as many smiles as possible!
