Hope for the Holidays Drive-Thru

On December 11, 2021, the Northeast Neighborhood Police Officers Unit continued to display the importance of teaming up and staying engaged with the community. They along with, the Lake Highlands Public Improvement District, The Apartment Association of Greater Dallas, Rusty Taco, Polaris Real Estate Partners, Network of Ministries, Dallas Police Academy Recruit Class 382, and TXU Energy, came together this holiday season and handed out toys, plates of food, and supplies to deserving families.

With so much generosity from our sponsorship, the Hope for the Holidays event was able to raise more than $10,000 worth of toys, 2,000 Rusty Taco gift cards, $3000 in gifts cards, and 1,000 meals. Flu Shots and Covid vaccinations for both adults and children were also offered in this drive-thru event. Not to mention, those that received the vaccination were given a $25.00 dollar gift card.

“We were super excited to have this event because it brought all of us closer together, “Officer Smith stated. “Seeing all those smiles and laughter is definitely my favorite part.”

The Hope for the Holidays Drive-Thru gathered about 500 vehicles and wouldn’t have been possible without assistance from our sponsors.

With the holidays around the corner, the Northeast Neighborhood Police Officers Unit is wishing everyone a safe and happy holiday.
