It’s a Christmas tradition that brings smiles to the children of Portland and the Louisville Metro Police 1st Division service area every year.
On Saturday, December 8th the LMPD 1st Division Police Auxiliary will host children and their families at their 43rd Annual Christmas Party.
“This is a special time of year for children in our area and every year the 1st Division Police Auxiliary works to make sure the children of this area have a special Christmas,” says Councilwoman Cheri Bryant Hamilton (D-5). “I am proud to be a sponsor of this event and I thank the Auxiliary for its dedication to the children of our area.”
The event is set for the Molly Leonard Community Center at 640 North 27th Street from 11:00am to 3:00pm.
Hamilton is joined by Councilwoman Barbara Sexton Smith (D-4) and President David James (D-6) as sponsors of the event.
“Over the years, the Auxiliary has brought seasonal joy to thousands of children who would not have holiday party otherwise,” said Sexton Smith (D-4). “Their dedication to the community is a shining example of the reason for the season.”
“Once again the Auxiliary has gone above and beyond the call of helping those in need in our community,” says James. “Like the men and women who protect us in the 1st Division, they have shown us how they care for those in who would not otherwise have a special holiday.”
The 43rd Annual Christmas Party is for children aged ten and under. Last year, the 1st Division Police Auxiliary was able to help over 300 children have a special holiday season. Every Child will have a chance to visit Santa Claus and Mrs. Claus and will receive a toy, fruit, candy, toboggan and gloves.
