Gifts will be delivered next week.

Nursing students from North Platte Community College and employees from Western Insurors stopped Thursday at police headquarters to help, Police Information Officer Rodney Brown said.

Every holiday season, the police provide Christmas gifts to hundreds of children in need.

Donations are welcome, Brown said, and more volunteers would be welcome to help get the gifts wrapped.

To volunteer to help wrap and organize gifts, call the police department at 535-6789.

The program receives no taxpayer support and is funded only through monetary contributions from the community.

“During these tough times, we are asking for your help to ensure that every child in our community has a Merry Christmas,” Brown said.

Tax-deductible donations can be made to: Santa Cop, P.O. Box 1458 North Platte, NE 69103.

Applications to receive gifts were accepted until Thanksgiving.
