Santa has been busy, but Wednesday he made it to Children's Hospital to deliver gifts to kids.

As magical as he his he probably couldn't do it without the help of St. Paul police.

The police department holds fundraisers throughout the year. They then use that money at Christmastime to buy toys and wrap them up for kids who have to spend their Christmas in the hospital.

A smaller group of St. Paul police officers started this tradition 13 years ago, and it has now grown to a department-wide effort.
