Dallas Santa Cops Give Gifts to Children of Slain Mother
It's December - a time where families join together to celebrate the season of giving and spreading cheer. Tragically, six Dallas children are learning to celebrate Christmas without their mother after she was murdered last month. That left it to the Dallas Police Department to make Christmas a little merrier for the mourning family.
Last month, a 15-year-year-old armed robber went into a Dollar General and demanded money from Gabrielle Simmons. According to CBS Dallas, After complying with the robber, the robber shot and killed her, leaving behind six children.
On Saturday (December 17), ‘Santa Cops’, led by Dallas Police Chief Renee Hall visited the Simmons household and delivered Christmas presents to all six kids that were provided by Toys For Tots.
On behalf of our family to yours, we just want to make the holiday as good as we could. So, we brought you some bikes and some toys. And here is a personal gift from me to you and your family.
Gabrielle’s fiancé, Aris Joseph was overwhelmed from the generosity while the children were surprised as well. And at the end of the day, they ended up with an extended family through the police department.
Santa Cops is an organization that has been around since 1984 and their purpose is helping individuals who have been victims of crime.
