Some South Bend Police officers have been credited with saving Christmas for a local family.

In the midst of dealing with crashes and other situations due to the winter storm, officers were called to a home around 11 a.m. on Christmas Eve on the report of a breaking and entering.

After talking to the homeowner, officers learned that Christmas gifts had been taken, leaving the children with nothing for the holidays.

Fortunately, officers were able to get in touch with the organizers of the South Bend F.O.P. Lodge #36 Santa’s Elficers program, who advised they had some leftover gifts to share.

Officers then came back to the home with several boxes of Christmas presents and food for the family.

As you can see in the video below, the children inside the home were delighted to see the gifts return under the tree.

Video of the local “Christmas miracle” has gone viral and the South Bend Police Department and it’s officers have received national recognition for their efforts.

The Santa’s Elficers program has grown each year. 426 children received gifts this year, nearly double that benefited from the program last year, according to South Bend Police.
