Secret Santa buys gifts for Wichita family

WICHITA, Kan. (KAKE) -

After hearing about a local family on Monday's KAKE newscast, an anonymous Secret Santa in the Wichita Police Department chose to surprise them.

The donor, who wants to remain anonymous, bough the family presents and Christmas dinner. Today, Sgt. Nikki Woodrow helped to deliver these gifts.

"I never had any presents the other Christmas. I didn't have a Christmas tree or nothing," said seven-year-old Santiago Reyes.

On Monday, Reyes' family became one of the lucky few who were randomly picked by Patrol East officers to receive a $50 gift card, courtesy of Kwik Shop.

The family was leaving a church in Planeview when officers noticed them.

"We came here because the kids asked me for a toy. I told them, let's go to the church to buy something cheap," said Miguel Bautista, father. "This gift is incredible for us. I'm seriously without words."
