Annual “Shop with A PAL” Saturday, December 17th – Would you like to help a family in need?

The Santa Clara Police Activities League (P.A.L.) has partnered with several local organizations to spread holiday cheer to the Santa Clara community.

Shop with a P.A.L. will pair SCPD employees and community volunteers with 50 local middle school students for a $200 holiday shopping spree at Target. Each child will have the opportunity to purchase holiday gifts and necessary household items for family members. Following this shopping experience, Royal Coach Tours will provide bus service to Mariani’s Inn and Restaurant for a complimentary breakfast consisting of eggs, pancakes, sausages, cereal, juice and coffee. A gift wrap station will also be available to package their newly purchased gifts.

P.A.L. has also arranged to deliver holiday gifts to 16 local families on Christmas Eve morning. Along with the present delivery, a gift basket will be provided to each family with everything necessary to prepare a delicious holiday meal.
