WHY:
Local Target Stores have reached out to LAPD-Topanga Division to participate with Community Heroes & Helpers Program. Senior Lead Officer Duke Dao would like to engage kids from Topanga Youth Wrestling Team. It began with a $500 donation from one store and other stores wanted to join in. Weeks later, Officer Dao was contacted by Target Corporate Office regarding the growth of this event. Officer Dao received a Community Helpers & Heroes Grant for $5,000 to take 50 kids from Canoga Park (Topanga Area Community) to shop as a reward for their dedication in teamwork. The Wrestling Program was created to keep kids out of trouble, build self-esteem and friendships. These selected kids get to spend $100 dollars to buy what they want for Christmas.

CONTACT: For additional information, please contact Topanga Area Senior Lead Officer, Duke Dao at (818) 731-2570, or email 34218@lapd.online
