Hundreds of Valley children will be able to open a gift this Christmas, thanks in part to kind-hearted police officers from the city of Pharr.

Pharr police have been working alongside other organizations to host its annual event called Blue Santa Clause Toy Drive. This event has been going on for more than 20 years.

If you are a family that would like to benefit from this event, it will take place on Dec. 21 at the Pharr Events Center. Doors open at 7 p.m. For more information go to or call (956) 475-3434
