TSD: Delaware’s best take on events, community and local life

State Police made their annual holiday visits to schools and hospitals throughout the state this month, spreading good cheer and lifting spirits as they escorted Santa and his elves to meet anxiously awaiting children. The Delaware State Police, with the support of the Delaware State Troopers Association (DSTA), says the holiday visits are as much looked forward to by the officers as they are the hundreds of smiling patients and youngsters.

Troopers had the honor of escorting Santa and Mrs. Claus, Miss Delaware 2019 Hillary May, the Princesses from Pursuit for Peace, along with other beloved characters, as they interacted with the children.

In New Castle County, a visit was made to the Nemours/Alfred I. duPont Hospital for Children, where lunch was provided to the children and their families, courtesy of the DSTA, Bacchetti Brothers Catering and Mission BBQ. During the luncheon, the children were able to play games and make holiday crafts, provided by the hospital’s Child Life Department, as well as having the opportunity to visit with Santa.

Troopers then escorted Santa and his friends, as he delivered gifts to patients in their rooms, who were unable to attend the luncheon. In all, over 200 patients received an early Christmas present, provided by the Child Life Department and the Delaware State Police Museum and Education Center. This marks the 22nd year, that the Delaware State Troopers Association has sponsored the Troopers visit to the hospital.
