Santa Cops

Santa Cops logo
The Grapevine Police Santa Cops program was started in 1995 by now retired Officer Margie Salame. Santa Cops delivers donated toys to economically disadvantaged children in the community. Through this program, Christmas wishes are fulfilled to over 800 area children each year. 
Santa Cops is funded entirely by local donations. It is organized and implemented by Grapevine Police Officers,  Grapevine Community Outreach Center employees and community volunteers. Santa Cops would be non-existent without the extreme generosity of the people of this great community!

Santa Cops applications will remain open for families until Friday, December 8, 2023. Gifts are available for children ages 3 to 17. All applications are done in person at the Grapevine Community Outreach Center. Please contact the outreach center for sign-up times and appointments at: 817.421.2192.
