Despite rainy weather, the Jolly Ole Santa Haulers, along with DeRidder and Rosepine Police Officers, held their 5th Annual Santa Ride Saturday evening.

A motorcade traveled from Beth-el Church to the DeRidder Police Station, toting Santa and $5,000 worth of donated presents.

Toys are donated and given to the DeRidder Police Department, each year, which are then distributed to needy children in the area.

Officials say over 120 families will receive gifts Sunday and into early next week.
