  2. Santa Cop Program

    October 14, 2016, 8:00 AM - December 9, 2016, 5:00 PM @ Lafayette Police Department and Municipal Court Building

    The Lafayette Police Department hosts the Santa Cop Program every year. This program coordinates gift donations for families in need in our community. The program relies largely on donations. If you would like to help support this program, we accept and appreciate new toy (appropriate for 2-15 years of age) and monetary donations. Donations are accepted at the police department year round, but additional toy collection sites will be around town in November. Monetary donations (cash, check or credit card) can be accepted at the police department, municipal court & city hall! We cannot always meet the needs of our nominated families by donated toys. We use monetary donations to purchase additional specific gifts that will meet other needs. Thank you very much if you can help support this program!
