Claus for a cause


Kids Armor of Hope founders Jeff Jeffries and Mark Hackney (behind check) pose in the lobby of City Hall with the Granbury Police Department’s “Santa Cops,” who raised money to purchase Christmas gifts for abused children by growing Santa-like beards. A “check” for $20,361 was presented by the department to Jeffries and Hackney during Tuesday night’s regular meeting of the Granbury City Council. Kids Armor of Hope sends abused children to summer camp and also sponsors a holiday party with gifts. The money raised by the Granbury PD will be used to purchase Christmas presents for 63 youngsters.
