This program is designed to assist children in need during the Christmas season.        

Thirty-six children, their families, KSP troopers, and KSP families met at the Area 2 Fire & Rescue Training Center in Princeton. 

Pizza was provided to everyone courtesy of the KSPPA and Walmart of Princeton. Drinks and paper products were donated by the Wal-Mart of Princeton. The Sonic Drive-In of Princeton treated everyone to ice cream.
