Christmas in July in St. Lucie County

It was Christmas in July today in St. Lucie County.

The Port St. Lucie Police Department delivered hundreds of donated toys to children at Patches in Fort Pierce.

Patches is a daycare service for children with special medical needs.

Santa was there and gave each of them a special bag with presents.

It was a special day for parents too as they saw their kids light up with joy.

"It's something that you don't have to worry about a doctor's appointment or the next procedure that's coming up. It's pure fun," said parent Nicole Fowler.

This is the third year the department has partnered with the city for this project.
