Mid-Plains Community College nursing students wrap gifts for the Santa Cop program Monday at the North Platte Senior Center.
This is the 35th year for the Santa Cop program, which provides gifts to children in need throughout Lincoln County. A total of 97 local children will benefit from the charity this holiday season. Each will receive four gifts.
Recipients are identified by The Salvation Army of North Platte, and the gifts are donated by community members and local businesses.
The North Platte Police Department will begin distributing the presents Wednesday.
