[ARCHIVED] Santa Cops

Santa Cops

The Grapevine Police Santa Cops is officially underway for the 2022 season. 

The 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 for hundreds of 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! While all gifts are appreciated, gifts for teenagers are always in short supply and very much appreciated by families. 

Anyone wanting to sign up to receive gifts can do so at the Grapevine Community Outreach Center. 

How can you help Santa Cops?

Santa Cops accepts toy donations starting in November. Monetary donations will be accepted during regular business hours at the Grapevine Public Safety Building. Toy drop-off locations will be at:

  • Grapevine Public Safety Building
  • City Hall
  • The REC

How else can you help Santa Cops?

Anyone wishing to volunteer to wrap toys can register to assist on scheduled wrapping nights, held in December. 2022 wrapping nights will take from 5-8pm place over three evenings:

  • Tuesday, December 6
  • Thursday, December 8
  • Tuesday, December 13
Wrapping will take place at our Toy Shoppe, located at 1217 SH-114, Suite 100 in Grapevine (near the Target Shopping Center.) Sign-up for wrapping nights is now OPEN, but you must register in advance:
