Escondido Police to Host 20th Annual Children’s Christmas Party

Every year since 1998, the Escondido Police Department has hosted an annual Christmas party to give kids who have been the victims of abuse, neglect, and violent crime a Christmas they might not otherwise get to experience. This year the party will be held on Thursday, December 7, 2017. The event will include food, a magic show, face painting, a visit with Santa Claus, and every child in attendance will receive gifts.

We are asking for the community’s help to make this Christmas a little bit brighter for these kids by donating a new, unwrapped toy for a boy or girl ages newborn to 18 years old.

Drop off locations are:
Escondido PD Front Lobby – 1163 N. Centre City Pky, Escondido
Escondido Federal Credit Union – 201 N. Broadway, Escondido
Escondido City Hall – 201 N. Broadway, Escondido

North County Yamaha – 2333 Montiel Rd, San Marcos
