Seven Highway Patrol troopers played the role of Santa at Mission Children's Hospital Tuesday night, bringing gifts and smiles to children. Troopers went door to door delivering presents to 16 children in the pediatrics unit. "Some of these children are stuck here for long periods of time, sometimes over the holidays, and it's just nice to be able to let them know that we support them, we think about them even though we are not here every day," Sgt. Craig Harris said. Parents of the children in the pediatric unit at Mission Children's Hospital say they are appreciative of the generous visitors.
