Yakima's men and women in blue stepped in to help out the jolly old man in red to provide an early Christmas for 20 of Yakima's underprivileged kids this morning.

The 6th annual Heroes and Helpers event matched officers from the Yakima Police Department with area children and each had a $50 gift card donated by Target.

From the YPD website..." Many of the officers went above and beyond the $50 gift card each child received and paid for presents with their own money. A big thank you to Target and our awesome Yakima Police Officers for making it a special Christmas for some special children."
