Bellmead Police Department toy drive a huge success

The Bellmead Police Department started its annual toy drive, Adopt a Child for Christmas, Dec. 8.  The concept was to gather a list of children who were in need of Christmas gifts.  The names are provided each year from the school counselors.  This year’s list consisted of 147 children ranging from infants to age 16.

“This is everything we could have hoped for and I would like to thank the community,” said Bellmead Police Chief Lydia Alvarado. “The citizens, businesses, and police department provided many smiles, lots of laughter and the occasional tears of joy. We were only able to achieve this by working together to fulfill many children’s hope to receive a gift this Christmas.”

Through careful planning and organization the police department was able to hand deliver approximately 90% of the gifts.  The entire department considers it an honor to experience this positive connection with the community. A special thanks to Cable & Wireless Solutions of Waco Texas for providing us with not only their amazing donation but with transportation that allowed us to deliver the enormous amount of gifts.

The Bellmead Police Department wishes everyone safe and happy holidays.
