AMARILLO - Today Blue Santa, also known as Fritch Police Chief Houston Gass helped deliver gifts and spread holiday cheer to children and their families.
Gass says it's important for communities to see police officers as real human beings.
Gass says, "I get to see the smiles get to play with the kids and have fun and interact with them plus I get to see the way the parents faces light up whenever they see their child's face light up and that's worth everything"
Gass says this is the second time he's been able to help out as Blue Santa.
One man is dead after being shot earlier today.
