Today the Dallas Police Department’s Police Athletic League (PAL) will partner with Greeks United (Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity and Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority) as they sponsor its 6th Annual Toy Drive to collect toys for the holiday season. The toy drive event will benefit children attending the Margaret H. Cone Head Start Center, the Oak Cliff Boys & Girls Club and the Templo Immanuel Church.
The event will be held in the Owner’s Box at the Omni Hotel Dallas from 6:30pm to 8:30pm, Thursday December 6th. The community is invited to participate by donating new, unwrapped toys for children up to 12 years old.
PAL will be giving 40 bicycles to kids who have participated in the league this year. These gifts and others will be distributed during a holiday celebration on December 15, 2012, from 12pm to 4pm at the Juanita Craft Recreation Center, located at 4500 Spring Avenue, Dallas, TX. Children and their families will be treated to entertainment and refreshments along with a visit from Santa Claus. Special prizes will be awarded to those children that have excelled in their school academics.
