Throughout the past few months Ms. Vonda Conner coordinated a “Toy Run and Food Drive” to assist less fortunate Dallas citizens during the holiday season.  On Saturday afternoon, on December 5, 2015, motorcyclists from “Toot’s Independent Riders” arrived with two pick-up trucks full of turkeys, canned goods, and toys to be distributed by officers temporarily assigned to the Santa Cops program. The donations were received from patrons at four business locations in Dallas, Terrell, and Forney: Neon Cowboy, Swingin’ Doors, Fat Dawg’s, and Stables. Southeast Division Officers helped unload the donations and brought them into the station where they were received by Detective Jason Kennedy (assigned to Santa Cops).  At the conclusion of the delivery, Ms. Conner was presented with one of the Southeast Division’s challenge coins for her role in organizing and coordinating this generous endeavor.
