The Pasadena Police Air Operations Section and the Foothill Air Support Team (FAST) plan to conduct their 7th annual Christmas Toy Drive at the Pediatrics Ward of Huntington Memorial Hospital. Pasadena Police Chief Phillip L. Sanchez will escort Santa Clause and his flight suit clad “elves” as they arrive, bearing gifts and holiday cheer in their own special rotor-equipped sleigh.
WHEN: Wednesday, December 19, 2012
WHERE: Huntington Memorial Hospital, 100 W California Blvd, Pasadena
The media should meet in the main lobby no later than 12:30 p.m., and will be escorted to the roof where the “sleigh” (helicopter) will land with Santa and crew, before visiting the Pediatrics Ward. The contact person is Shavon Cox, she can be reached at (626) 397-864.
This event was funded through the generous contributions of our employees and Officer Associations participating in the FAST program, throughout the San Gabriel Valley. “This truly demonstrates the care and compassion of the employees from all of our agencies,” said Chief Phillip L. Sanchez. “It is our honor to be the hosting and coordinating agency, to put this together with the men and women of so many other fine police departments, but mostly it is our pleasure to bring some joy into the lives of the children who won’t be home for Christmas.”
