Commissioner, Police Association Hosting Toy Drive on Friday
Clark County Commissioner Lawrence Weekly, the National Latino Peace Officers Association and other community partners are joining forces to collect toys for needy children from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday, Dec. 7, at the G. Dallas Horton & Associates law office at 4435 S. Eastern Ave.
The toy drive is collecting donations and unwrapped gifts for children ages 5- to 10-years-old. Lunch will be provided to donors. The first 100 people who donate toys will receive two tickets to comedian George Wallace’s show.
This is the Officers Association’s fourth annual “Christmas en el Barrio” toy drive. Each year the association selects a different local school to receive the gifts. This year the gifts will go to students at the Sunrise Acres Elementary School.
“Every year our community pulls together to support this effort and bring a merry Christmas to many, many children,” Commissioner Weekly said. “I am grateful for the generosity of our friends and neighbors who share their good fortune during the holiday season.”
In addition to the Officers Association and Commissioner Weekly, the partners involved with the toy drive also include G. Dallas Horton & Associates, EXIT Realty Platinum Group, United Realty Group, the Las Vegas-Clark County Library District Foundation, Joe’s Barbershop and La Bonita Supermarkets.
