Santa Ride Will Benefit Children’s Inn at NIH

It’s that time of year where for one day, Santa will trade in his sleigh for Harley-Davidson motorcycle during the Montgomery County Police Department’s annual Santa Ride.

Each year, the police department joins Santa as his motor officer elves as they travel throughout the county on their motorcycles to collect gifts and donations from local businesses and organizations for the children and families at The Children’s Inn at NIH (National Institutes of Health).

When the motor officers arrive to the Inn, they help the children choose presents for their family members at a gift shop, according to a news release.
