ROBSTOWN, Texas — Officers with the Robstown Police Department surprised several families Thursday afternoon with Christmas gifts.

Robstown officers heard there were several needy families living at Young's Trailer Park off of Business 77 and Upshaw Boulevard. So, around 3 p.m. Thursday, they stopped by the trailer park and gave ten families Christmas gifts for their children. They also gave the adults $25 Walmart gift cards.

But the generosity didn't stop there as they also gave one man a $25 gift card for his puppy who was also excited to see the officers.

Officer John Garcia said they were able to help families today because of their partnership with Toys for Tots, local business owners and private donors from the Robstown area.
