Santa and Yuma police officer were busing making rounds at the children's wing of the Yuma Regional Medical Center this morning.
YPD officers and the big man in red surprised young patients in the pediatrics section of YRMC to shed a little bit of Christmas cheer to children who unfortunately won't be able to celebrate at home.
They passed out stockings filled with candy and toys which were donated by local businesses.
Yuma police officers say this tradition is the one that means the most to them.
