Happy Holidays From the Florida Highway Patrol

from Troop F, C, G and ITroopers across the state participated in various holiday events. Troop F collected Toys for Tots, Troops C and I helped Santa with his deliveries and Troops G and I took several children shopping for gifts.

Troop F participated in the Toys for Tots statewide toy drive. FHP Troopers collected toys from Monday, December 1, through Friday, December 19. Locally, Troopers stuffed three FHP Dodge Chargers with the toys, delivering them to designated Toys for Tots collection offices in Lee, Sarasota and Manatee Counties.

Troop C and I assisted with toy deliveries to Tampa and Ruskin for the annual 2014 Sincerely Santa program spreading holiday cheer to numerous children.

Troop G and I Troopers from Jacksonville participated in the Shop With A COP program in Yulee, hosted by the Nassau County Sheriffs� Office. There were over 90 children who were given an opportunity to pick out toys for Christmas. A special thank you to Sheriff Bill Leeper for partnering with the Patrol.

These events were truly fun and amazing and helped children and their families during the holidays. Just look at their smiles!
