The Hanukkah candles have burned down, the Christmas tree remains empty but aglow.

All of us at Our Town Tustin (yes, that is all three of us) would like to wish our Christian friends, a very Merry Christmas, our Jewish friends, a very Happy Hanukkah (regardless of the way you spell it), and our friends of other faiths and belief traditions a very Happy Holiday. And, to everyone, we wish you a Happy and Prosperous New Year. Though we still grieve for families torn apart by senseless violence, our nation, state and town remain united in promise and faith. And, as we always ask at this time of year, please pray for our US Military members who remain abroad in far away lands. They spend this holiday season apart from their loved ones so that you and I may spend it safely with ours.

Santa Cop a Huge Success – Press Release

FAMILIES CELEBRATE THE SEASON AT “SANTA COP”

 

TUSTIN, Calif. – On December 12, 2013, The Tustin Police Department held its 24th annual Santa Cop party.  This program provides children in the Tustin community presents to open on Christmas day.

Santa Cop 2013 Approximately 24 years ago, a Tustin Police Department employee came up with the idea to help families with limited resources provide presents to their children.  The Tustin Unified School District assisted the Police Department by providing names of families needing assistance.  Police employees also submitted names of families they came in contact with in the field.

 The first Santa Cop program kicked off with twelve families.  It grows every year and last night, we were able to provide presents to 157 children who wouldn’t have otherwise had a present to open.   The families were provided dinner and Santa made a special appearance bringing Holiday joy and gifts.  The children enjoyed face painting, balloon hats and popcorn throughout the evening. 

The smiles on the faces of the children when Santa arrived with presents made it a very special evening for all of those in attendance.

The Tustin Police Department would like to thank everyone who contributed to the Santa Cop program.  It would not have been possible without the time given and donations by the following organizations:

 Barnes & Noble Booksellers, Kiwanis Club of Tustin, Tustin Host Lions Club, T.E.A.M. (Tustin Effective Apartment Managers), Golden West College Police Academy Recruits, Executive Director Cherrill Cady, Miss Tustin and her Court, D.J. Omar, Tustin Police Explorers, Tustin Police Volunteers, City of Tustin employees, and local businesses and residents.  Dinner was provided by Roma D’Italia restaurant and the face painting and balloon hats were provided by Clowning Around Entertainment.  

 The Tustin Police Department wishes the community of Tustin a joyous, peaceful, and safe Holiday Season.
