HAVERSTRAW -

Christmas came early for some people living in Rockland County this weekend.

Santa handed out gifts to deserving families in Haverstraw courtesy of the Haverstraw PBA.

He ditched his sleigh and reindeer for a police escort and even traded in his red suit for a blue one.

Haverstraw PBA President Nick Armida says they selected three families that could use a little extra help this holiday season. "Giving back to the community is very important to us because we are supported by the community throughout the year and we really appreciate what the community does for us."
