LAPD and the Pacific Division boosters reached out to our local schools who helped them identify some families in our area that could really use some help this holiday season. I know emotions in our often conflicted neighborhood run high, but this is truly an opportunity to realize what we can do when a community works together, and these families can really use the help. Their stories would break your heart. Please, please toss even a days coffee money to this cause and help show some warmth and put a smile in the hearts of some families who are struggling in our neighborhood right now. The GoFundMe page can be found here —> https://www.gofundme.com/opholidaywishes .
If you would like to know more or get a bit more involved, LAPD’s beach officers will be going up and down the boardwalk each day handing out flyers for Operation Holiday Wishes. We have an awesome beach unit led by Sgt. Skinner and they are working hard to help these local families and get the word out. If you would like to participate and post a flyer in your business or hand some out please send an email here and officers will visit you, let you know the stories and set you up.
