With a $12,000 grant from the Gulfton Area Management District, Houston police officers with the differential response team based at the HPD Gulfton storefront office have picked out Christmas toys at area Walmarts for about 150 pre-selected, disadvantaged children as part of the HPD’s annual toy drive.

The kids will receive their toys Saturday (Dec. 10), with uniformed officers escorting each child to parts of the storefront where they will find gifts appropriate for their age groups.

Toy drive organizers continue to accept donations to widen the reach of the program. Donate at amazon.com by searching under the “registry and gifting” for the 2022 HPD South Gessner Toy Drive.
