We kick off Operation Santa Claus Monday with the arrival of Santa Claus on a Shreveport Fire Truck.

If you don't know anything about the program, let me tell you it is your way to help make a Christmas for a local family. We have teamed up with local law enforcement and fire departments to help make Christmas a little brighter for hundreds of families. Santa will be arriving at the station at 10 Monday morning onboard a fire truck. You are welcome to bring your kids out and meet the jolly one. This year, Candy's Ice has made a Santa out of ice and she's bringing it to the celebration. It will last for about 10 hours, so you have all day to come check it out and take pictures. But please remember this number. 687-GIFT. We need your calls to help us buy gifts for all of the children this year. Remember Christmas is so much better when you reach out to others. Thanks!
