Detention personnel suited up for the delivery as Santa Clause, and his elves.

A total of 167 gifts were delivered to the children of the Region 19 Headstart Program in Montana Vista and Red Sands Elementary School.

This marks the 12th year the “Christmas Angels” program brings Christmas cheer to the children of the County of El Paso.
