Oklahoma Highway Patrol troopers brought some holiday cheer to kids in the hospital Tuesday.

Troopers teamed up with Santa Claus to deliver teddy bears to children at Saint Francis. The Oklahoma State Troopers Association donated the bears and the kids loved them. Troopers say they were happy to see so many smiling faces.

OHP trooper Brandon Kopepasah: "Anytime we get a chance to be with kids, that's important, and so we want to be able to make an impact, to let them know that they're loved and that they're well thought of."

The troopers tell us they delivered about 200 teddy bears Tuesday.
