APD Foothills Area Command Chaplain Ann Montoya is asking for the community to join with our APD Foothills team in gathering holiday food items for needy families identified by the local school counselors as being in dire need.
The food and toileteries being gathered will be collected through December 15th and the APD Foothills Substation is serving as a collection point. Items can be dropped off at 12800 Lomas Boulevard NE from today through December 15th, on Mondays through Fridays between 8:00 a..m. to 5:00 p.m.
We need our community to either put together a box full of items a family would use to prepare meals during the holiday school break or individual/bulk non-perishables, pantry staples and toiletries that can go into a partially assembled holiday food box.
Our APD Foothills officers will be delivering the boxes during the APS holiday break.
Thank you for sharing with our community’s neediest members and ensuring hot, healthy meals for these families during the holiday season.
