Escondido Children’s Christmas Party

Every year the Escondido Police Department hosts an annual Children’s 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. The party will take place in early December. The event will include food, a magic show, arts and crafts, 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. We are also in need of donations in the form of gift cards for the older children who will be attending the event. Some ideas/suggestions for the gift cards would be for coffee shops, department stores, and movie theaters.

Drop off locations are:
Escondido PD Front Lobby – 1163 N Centre City Pky, Escondido 92026
Escondido Federal Credit Union – 201 N Broadway, Escondido, 92025
Escondido City Hall – 201 N Broadway, Escondido, 92025

CrossFit Point A – 985 Woodland Pky #119, San Marcos, 92069
CrossFit Iconic – 237 E. Valley Pkwy, Escondido, 92025

We will be collecting gifts until Friday November 30th, 2018

We appreciate the generosity and continued support we receive from the community every year for this event. We could not do this without your help.
