OWENSBORO, KY (WFIE) - It's a bit early to think about Christmas, but Owensboro Police are already collecting money for 'Operation Santa'.

Officers were at the Highway 54 Walmart location on Saturday, grilling hotdogs and pork burgers to benefit the 2014 Operation Santa food drive.

In 2013, the Owensboro Police Department partnered with the Elizabeth Munday Center to collect and distribute food baskets to members of the Daviess County Meals On Wheels program.

Over 200 food baskets were delivered by Santas in blue, and they hope to hand out even more this year.
