For 34 years the Plano Police Association (PPA) Christmas COPS has served needy families in our community! As of Friday, November 2, collection boxes will be in place at several locations across the City for donations of food, NEW toys and coats, plus a variety of other items. See this flyer for a detailed list of the most requested items.
The success of Christmas COPS is dependent on generous residents, civic groups...and people like YOU! Police officers submit the names of families to the program who they encounter while on the job. In addition, City Manager Glasscock encourages all employees to refer names of needy families to Christmas COPS for help this holiday.
Each year the wish list from the kids for toys is quite long too. Lend a hand by taking unwrapped items to any Christmas COPS drop box or bring your donations to the Team Plano Holiday Luncheon on December 6. The PPA also accept monetary gifts. The deadline for donations is Wednesday, December 7. Check out the collection box sites (recreation centers, libraries, fire stations) or call 972-941-2295 if you have questions.
Be Santa’s Helper this year – give to Christmas COPS!
