MVPD Announces the 10th Annual "Cops That Care" Holiday Gift Giving Program

Calling All Toy Donations!

On Saturday, December 22, 2012, over 1700 children from the community will gather at the Mountain View Police Department for the 10th annual "Cops That Care" holiday gift giving event. This wildly successful event, founded by Officer Ron Cooper ten years ago, provides gifts for children whose families may not have the means to purchase gifts on their own. Children up to 18 years of age who have an affiliation to Mountain View will be able to visit the Police/Fire Auditorium at 1000 Villa St. and select a toy from the thousands available.

Every year the Mountain View Police Department relies on cash and toy donations from the community in order to make this event successful and fun for the children. The Department is now accepting new and unwrapped toys and clothing as well as gift cards and cash. Donations can be brought directly to the Police Department at 1000 Villa St. Checks should be made out to the Mountain View Police Activities League (MVPAL) with "Cops that Care" written in the comment section.

This program is designed for families in Mountain View who are unable to purchase gifts for their children this holiday season. Parents or guardians of participating children will be asked to present something that will show their child's connection to Mountain View. Examples include, but are not limited to: driver’s license/ID card with a Mountain View address, school report card, school ID, child day care enrollment form or bill, utility bill, etc.

The Police/Fire Auditorium will be open to children on Saturday, December 22, 2012, from 9:00am to 6:00pm. Children must be accompanied by an adult.
