Santa Claus arrived in Shreveport-Bossier Monday, Dec. 2 to bring some early holiday cheer to the children of Turner Elementary Middle School and launch this year's Operation Santa Claus.

Each year, Shreveport-Bossier first responders meet children who won't have much of a Christmas. That's why our six Townsquare Media radio stations have teamed up with the Shreveport Police and Fire Departments and the Bossier Sheriff's Office for Operation Santa Claus.

For the next two weeks, we'll be asking you -- our listeners -- to help make Christmas a little bit merrier for these kids, who have been nominated for Operation Santa Claus by the first responders themselves.
