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, their families and community volunteers. Santa Cops would be non-existent without the extreme generosity of the people of this great community!
How can you help Santa Cops?
Santa Cops accepts toy donations starting in November. Locations are announced in late fall, with both toy and monetary donations accepted at key locations.
How else can you help Santa Cops?
Anyone wishing to volunteer to wrap toys can assist on scheduled wrapping nights, held in December. Dates, times and locations are typically announced mid-November.
