Police officers in Weslaco and Mission delivered holiday cheer on Monday.
Both police departments distributed Christmas presents in two separate events.
Weslaco police held their 10th Annual Toy Giveaway where hundreds of boys and girls were given a gift and greeted by Santa Claus.
Mission police held another similar event outside the police department.
Children and their families were selected by officers out on patrol.
Anabel Cardona with the Valley Grande Institute said the events helped the needy in hard times.
"It's a heartfelt satisfaction, espcially with how times are right now," she said. "They need our help and we need to all contribute as much as we can."
