MPD teams with area businesses to spread Christmas cheer

The Mansfield Police Department teamed with corporate citizens Zachry Industrial, Wal-Mart, and Brookshire’s Food to provide Christmas cheer for residents of the Mansfield community. This is the fourth year the Mansfield Police Department has partnered in an effort to assist less fortunate families in the community. Over 150 children and their parents filled the DeSoto Multicultural Center to receive a Christmas surprise.

For the second year, residents of the two nursing facilities in the city have been showered with gifts and a Christmas visit as well. Presents are not just left, but they are hand delivered to each resident.

Because of the charitable companies in the area, the giving has been able to continue, reaching more than 300 individuals during the Christmas season. Every year, the Christmas give-away has continued to grow and this year even gained the corporate sponsorship of Brookshire’s Food.

As a result of the actions of the Mansfield Police Department and the corporate sponsors many residents gained a little more joy this holiday season.
