The North Los Angeles Chapter in conjunction with the West Covina Chamber of Commerce sponsored a recent event for over two hundred children in need. Every year the chamber buses in kids from varying schools in the area and provides them with shoes and socks from Payless Shoes. This year the North Los Angeles chapter was able to give a toy to each child that attended. A great time was had by all who attended and the kids were very grateful.
I would like to thank all of you who participated in yesterdays 7th annual City of Hope toy give away. We had law enforcement representation from the DEA, Inglewood PD, LASD, Covina PD, Bell Gardens PD and Downey PD. The event was well received and the kids really enjoyed our presence. Thank you for making a difference. Special thanks to Richard Wade (santa clause) for flying in from Seatle and Toni for putting forth a great effort. I would also like to thank our toy sponsor Steve Supowitz and Savino Morales from IFS for their ongoing support as well as Christina Karagias and Phil from Pacos Mexican Restaurant for providing lunch for everyone after the event. I am proud to be affiliated with everyone involved. God bless and have Merry Christmas.
