MPCC nursing students help community through Santa Cop program

Santa Cop 2023
Wednesday, December 13, 2023

Mid-Plains Community College nursing students spent Wednesday wrapping gifts for the North Platte Police Department’s Santa Cop program.

The program provides Christmas presents to children in need who are identified through The Salvation Army of North Platte. The nursing students have helped wrap the gifts every year since the program’s inception in 1985.

The police department is responsible for organizing the event and distributing the gifts. A total of 86 children in Lincoln County will benefit from the program this year.
