“Each present represents hope. It’s hope to a kid who’s not gonna have any Christmas. Thanks to these kids right here, that’s exactly what they did - they gave them Christmas this year. So, I’m very, very proud of them," said Officer Kyle Calloway.

This is something GDPS does every year - telling FOX 54 over the past decade they’ve given 300,000 toys.

You can still donate - the deadline to accept toys has been extended to December 22nd.
