The Gulfport Police Department is asking the community to help provide toys to children in need. Officials are asking for new unwrapped toys and gift cards for the annual "Operation Santa" program.
This is the 20th anniversary of the program, and it wouldn't be possible without donations from the community.
This year, there are about 150 Gulfport children in need of gifts for the holidays.
Stop by Gulfport City Hall and Police Department at 2401 53rd St. S. with your donation. If you have any questions, please call either Francine Whitten at 727-893-1042 or Cynthia Hayes at 727-893-1049. Thank you.
