LAPD Angels Community Toy Drive--Discovering the Angel in All of Us Van

"LAPD Angels Community Toy Drive--Discovering the Angel in All of Us"
"Van Nuys Community Police Station Toy Giveaway"


Los Angeles: With the Holidays upon us, and in the spirit of giving, the Los Angeles Police Department and the community it serves are combining efforts to donate food and unwrapped toys for the many under privileged children in the Los Angeles Area.

Throughout this past year, we have been faced with unprecedented obstacles, challenges and a newly reprised feeling of City unity. With so many overwhelming recent events that have shaken our sense of security, it is assuring to know that as a City, we will recover, and prosper together simply because we care and are committed to serving each other.

In keeping with the tradition of giving, Van Nuys Community Police Station in conjunction with the Salvation Army will be sponsoring the Van Nuys Kids Holiday Party and Toy Giveaway. The event will be held on December 21, 2002, at 11:00 a.m., at 14917 Victory Boulevard, Van Nuys.

Please direct any inquiries regarding this media advisory to Public Information Officer, Grace Brady, Media Relations Section 213-485-3586.
