Operation Blue Christmas is the LAPPL's annual toy drive that allows us to partner with LAPD officers to deliver presents and gifts on Christmas to bring joy upon the hearts of families whose circumstances are less than optimal. The program was designed after New York Sergeants’ Benevolent Association which began in 2012.
For the last five years, on-duty, uniformed officers have brought toys and other gifts to over 24 deserving families that were identified and nominated by the participating divisions:
- West Valley
In the past, we have partnered with other organizations such as Philippe's to assist families in dire need. Tears of happiness and smiles as wide as possible were present when these officers delivered overflowing bags of gifts over their shoulders and stood in the families' doorways.
While we still have a ways to go until Christmas 2022, we are happy to accept any early donations to help deserving families this Winter. Because of the ongoing pandemic, we are unable to accept toy donations at this time, but welcome gift cards and financial contributions. To donate, please click on Santa below!
