Christmas has arrived early for some families in New Iberia.

The city's police department, along with members of the Iberia Parish School Board, got together and handed out gifts in a sleigh float.

More than 100 children benefited from the generosity.

It doesn't stop there, though - Tuesday, 10 kids will be chosen to shop and have lunch with a police officer.

"It's a happy time, so we said, 'Let's distribute gifts to kids,'" explained New Iberia Police Sgt. Daesha Hughes. "We didn't want to have a distribution center. We wanted to literally get out in the community and go to each child's house and distribute the gifts to them."
