Anthony, New Mexico (KTSM) — The season of giving is in full swing here in the Borderland.
Officers from the New Mexico Department of Public Safety Motor Transportation Police took on the job of old Saint Nick Tuesday morning, delivering toys to needy children in Anthony and Santa Teresa.
"It brings us a lot of self satisfaction we enjoy doing this. This is something that is only a once a year project it gives us an opportunity to give back to the community," said Sergeant Ricardo Rodriguez with New Mexico Motor Transportation Police.
This is the second year that the Motor Transportation Police participates in this event.
