Christmas for Kids
The Dunwoody Police Department's Christmas for Kids program began in 2009 with Sergeant Fidel Espinoza's idea to help Dunwoody’s less fortunate children by making their Christmases a little brighter.
Our goal was to collect new and unwrapped toys, search our community for needy families with children from newborn to fifteen years old, and invite them to a private Christmas festival where Santa and all his helpers would come together to personally deliver those toys and gifts to the lucky 50-plus kids that were chosen.
Since then, the CFK program has received an overwhelming response from the Dunwoody community and has broadened to include gift donations to local shelters, hospitals, schools and churches. We still keep our private Christmas festival small and personal by hosting only 50 or so kids each year; however, all registered families showing a true need for help receive assistance from our program.
