BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC)- Neither rain, nor slow, nor sleet, nor hail shall keep Santa Claus from his appointed rounds. He proved that Friday when he arrived at Children's of Alabama in Birmingham with a trailer full of gifts for the second annual Operation Toy Drop.
But he wasn't accompanied by reindeer, but representatives of 14 law enforcement agencies from across the state instead.
The law enforcement officers typically arrive at the hospital by helicopter but the rain grounded them this year. Thankfully, they were still able to deliver hundreds of toys and games.
Those gifts will stock the Sugar Plum Shop, a special holiday store on the Children's of Alabama campus. The shop is a convenient way for parents to "shop" for their little ones and siblings for free.
