Operation Santa Claus is a multi-agency, non-profit organization made up of law enforcement volunteers who sign up needy children to receive toys for Christmas. Operation Santa Claus is an officer-referred program. Once officers submit the names of deserving children, volunteers find the toys the children ask for, wrap them up, and give them to the officers to deliver to those children in time for Christmas.
The program starts around Thanksgiving and runs until two days before Christmas. For more information or to donate toys, call 318-687-GIFT (that phone number is only good while the operation is in effect).
