Deputies from the Lake Elsinore Sheriff’s Station continued a long-time tradition today of spreading holiday cheer to local needy children as part of the annual Cops for Kids program.
Lake Elsinore Sheriff’s Station Captain Shelley Kennedy-Smith, along with several of her lieutenants, sergeants and deputies, hand-delivered gifts Saturday morning to underprivileged youth living throughout the Lake Elsinore Unified School District boundaries. Local Cal Fire/Riverside County Fire Department crews also gave their time to the event.
The Lake Elsinore station, in support of Cops for Kids, has been conducting a toy drive that saw donations from the local community and culminated in today’s delivery.
For some of Saturday’s young recipients, the Cops for Kids presents may be all they receive this holiday season.
