LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Jennifer Lawrence wasn't the only celebrity to visit Kosair Children's Hospital in the days before Christmas.
Santa Claus also showed up today, alongside dozens of local police officers.
The Fraternal Order of Police Lodge 614 raised $5,000 to buy toys for every child who will spend this Christmas in the hospital. Each child got a personal visit from Santa and got to share their Christmas wishes with him.
Santa has been making personal deliveries at Kosair for the past 16 years.
"Me personally, this is a gift to me to myself to come down here and give a gift to a child and watch them smile," said Timothy Lanham, an LMPD officer.
And not to be forgotten: the staff who will work through the holidays at Kosair. Santa and the officers dropped off a holiday meal for the adults at the hospital.
