Gulfport Police Department “Operation Santa”

For 21 years, Gulfport Police Department employees have sponsored a program called “Operation Santa” in which toys are donated to needy children that live in the City of Gulfport.  Operation Santa has been successful in part due to the contributions we receive.  We would again like to ask the public for help in the form of donations, i.e. unwrapped toys, gift cards, and money for the purchasing of gifts.  The collections will be accepted up to 12/22/12.  We currently have 41 families (110 kids) on the list but typically reach approximately 100 families.  Any help that you can provide would be greatly appreciated.  If you have any questions, please call 893-1042 and leave a message and someone will return your call.
