BPD Blue Santa delivered gifts to children
BEAUMONT - Every year the Beaumont Police Department's Santa-in-Blue program delivers gifts to children in the city.
Blue Santa and his elves made their way around town Thursday night to drop off the gifts to little girls and boys to help make Christmas cheerful and bright.
The Blue Santa program started about twenty-five years ago when a group of midnight shift officers answered a routine call for service around Christmastime.
They found the parents couldn't afford to celebrate Christmas with their children, so the officers took it upon themselves to buy, wrap and deliver gifts to the family.
