Police Seek Donations for Giving Tree Program

Annual holiday program helps area families and seniors in need.

Here's information provided by the Livermore Police Department:

Livermore Police Department and Citizens Police Academy Alumni Association (CPAAA) kick off the Tenth Annual “Holiday Giving Tree” Program.

The Livermore Police Department Citizen’s Academy Alumni Association (CPAAA) and the Livermore Police Department will be conducting its annual “Holiday Giving Tree” again this year.  The Giving Tree will be in the lobby of the Livermore Police Department, located at 1110 S. Livermore Avenue now through Tuesday, Dec. 14,  from 8 a.m.to 5 p.m.

Several Livermore families and seniors have been selected for the Holiday Giving Tree program. All are in need of some assistance to make this holiday season a little more special. Everyone selected has defined their special needs that they have this holiday season. Those needs are then placed on tags and the tags are hung on the “Giving Tree.” 

Select a tag and purchase the item(s) on the tag. Bring the item(s) to the Police Station and place them in the large “chimney” box in the lobby with the tag attached. CPAAA volunteers will then wrap all of the collected gifts and donations and they will be delivered to the families shortly before Christmas.  We will also have a donation box placed at Lizzie Fountain during the Holiday Sights and Sounds Parade on December 1st.  You may drop a gift into the box with or without a tag from the “Giving Tree.” 

Please help spread the holiday spirit to some of our needy families in Livermore by your participation.

This is another great example of LPD working with the community and showing they care deeply for all the residents regardless of their means.

The Giving Tree is a great way to show your kids how to give back! Have your child select a tag off the tree, take them to the store to buy the gift and then bring it back to the station. In the past years I have valued explaining to my boys the process of how we were helping.
