Thank you to everyone who came out to the inaugural Grapevine Police Santa Cops Drive-Thru Donation Drive on Tuesday, November 22, 2022. 57 cars came through the front parking lot of the Grapevine Public Safety Building, many with multiple bags filled with toys for children and teens in need.
CBS DFW partnered up with GPD to help promote the need and the drive-thru, and several families said they heard about the Santa Cops program through watching the news. The Grinch and his helpers also made lots of children smiled, as they climbed out of their cars to pose for photos. All of the employees and volunteers who helped out made the evening fun, and all shared in the desire to make the best Christmas possible for local families.
Every toy and cash donation is much appreciated, and Grapevine Police are hopeful they will reach their goal for the year. With more than 1,200 children served each year, thousands of toys are still needed.
The Drive-Thru event included chances to win one of several prizes. The winners can pick up their prizes starting Monday, November 28, 2022 in the lobby during regular business hours. Anyone who needs to work out an alternate time can call ahead and work out something to claim their prize. The following raffle tickets won:
