Operation Santa Delivers Toys To More Than 100 Pitt Co. Children

At least 100 children in Pitt County were given gifts due to Operation Santa Claus. Several organizations take part, including the Highway Patrol, Sheriffs Department, Greenville Police, fire and rescue, and ECU. The collecting of toys for children started November 27 and ended December 16th. Friday the groups along with Santa Claus made a few special deliveries to less fortunate families.

Its something newly elected Sheriff Neil Elks is proud of.
"Oh we're so excited to go out and put a smile on kids faces and make their Christmas, but I would like to thank the citizens of Pitt County although we live in a tough economical time the people have still come up step forward to give gifts from the bottom of their hearts and made this day possible," said Sheriff Elks.

    I don't think the rent-a-cops were informed of this. It's great to see kids getting presents on Christmas. Now if we would only accept the fact that the parents need to try to improve the lives of these children, we would be much better off.

    That’s strange operation Santa has been going on in Pitt County sponsored by the Pitt County Sheriff's Office, Greenville PD, Greenville Fire/Rescue, ECU and a number of other agencies for several years now. If you are a police officer as you say you are not very aware of your surroundings, as this event is advertised at every school in Pitt County, the Greenville Mall and a number of other places.

    That's strange. I'm a law enforcement officer in Pitt County and didn't know anything about this.
