BRUNSWICK COUNTY -- Santa still has a few days to load up his sleigh, but Thursday was the big loading day for some Santa Cops in Leland.
For the past few months, Leland police officers have been collecting more than 1,000 toys to be taken to the Lake Waccamaw Boys and Girls Home.
"Also, they are going to distribute toys out throughout foster homes, that they have networked out. We are going to try and make as many smiling faces on the children this season as we can," said Robert Ernest of the Leland Police Department.
This is the second year for the Leland Santa Cop program, and officers say it's just the beginning. The program will be around for years to come.
