Willhoite's 20th Annual Santa Cops

Willhoite's Restaurant, a fixture in historic downtown Grapevine since 1981, hosted the 20th Annual Santa Cops Toy Drive + Fundraiser December 1 and set a new record: $28,300. Santa Cops delivers donated toys to economically disadvantaged children in the community. Through this program, Christmas wishes are fulfilled to over 800 area children each year. 
 
Santa Cops is funded entirely by local donations. It is organized and implemented by the Grapevine Police Department. Willhoite's has been the long-time host of the annual event, which encourages guests to bring unwrapped toys for donation, and also includes raffles and auction items. 

Although Willhoite's hosts and coordinates the one-night event each year, the Santa Cops program accepts ongoing toy donations at the Santa Shoppe located at 1217 W SH 114 Ste 120 in Grapevine. Santa Cops also accepts cash donations, which can be dropped off at the Public Safety Building located at 1007 Ira E Woods Ave and/or the Community Outreach Center located at 3010 Mustang Dr. in Grapevine.
