Calling All Citizens, Officers Need Assistance!
(Rio Rancho, NM) --- As we approach the 2018 holiday shopping season, the Rio Rancho Police Explorers Post 911 is in need of the community’s help as they gear up for the Annual Christmas Party for under privileged children in Rio Rancho. Every year for nearly fifteen years, members of the RRPD Explorers Post join with Rio Rancho Police Officers to volunteer their time and efforts to put on this very valuable event that provides Christmas gifts and a meal for about 300 children every year. This event would not have such a vibrant history if it were not for the generous assistance from local businesses and community members.
We are in need of new unwrapped toys for boys and girls between the ages of toddler to 12 years old. Donations can be dropped off at the Rio Rancho Police Department at 500 Quantum Road, the Esther Bone Memorial Library, and the Loma Colorado Library beginning October 30th, 2018. Though donations of toys are preferred, interested parties can make financial contributions for the event to the Rio Rancho Police Explorers Post 911 by check.
This year’s event will be held on Saturday, December 15th, and we hope to have preparatory activities finalized by November 26th. It would be greatly appreciated if donations could be in before November 26th so that sorting and wrapping can begin. Thank you.
