"LAPD Angels Community Toy Drive -- Discovering the Angel in All of Us" -
"Central Area Police Station Food 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 unwrapped toys and books 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, Central Area Police Station in conjunction with Downtown Morning Rotary will be sponsoring the Central Area Police Station Food Giveaway. The event will be held on Saturday, December 14, 2002, between 9:00 a.m. and 11:00 a.m., at Dearden’s Furniture Store located at 7th and Main.
