BILOXI, MS (WLOX) -

The Biloxi Police Department partnered with students from Biloxi High School to play Santa on Monday. It's all apart of the annual Santa Wears a Badge Program. The department collected gifts in the weeks leading up to the holidays for local infants to children up to 11-years-old.

And recently the program expanded to include three retirement homes. Groups of police officers and students took the gifts collected and went door to door throughout Biloxi to deliver the presents.

"I'm just thankful that they gave my grand-baby some toys," said toy recipient Stephanie Washington.

The Santa Wears A Badge Program has been helping the less fortunate for more than 20 years.
