HISTORY OF CHRISTMAS FOR KIDS
The Dunwoody Police Department Christmas for Kids (CFK) program began in 2009 with the goal of bringing our community together to collect new and unwrapped toys and gifts for Dunwoody’s under-privileged children between the ages of Newborn to 15 years old.
Officers work together with I Care Atlanta, Inc. and other local sponsors to hold a Christmas celebration at a local facility where Santa and his Elves (along with a toy soldier or two!) arrive to greet deserving kids and their parents and enjoy a festive celebration complete with gifts and activities for the kids as well as snacks for the whole family.
Christmas for Kids is a community effort and is only made possible by the generosity of our citizens, businesses, and other local organizations.
