Operation Santa - Christmas 2010

Over the past month, the Downey Fire Department has been collecting Christmas toys for the Department’s annual “Operation Santa.”  Downey Fire C-shift personnel delivered the toys to the Barbara Riley Senior Center, where on Monday, December 20th, Dispatch Supervisor Tracy Gonzalez and a group of “Santa’s Helpers” distributed the toys to children of needy families.  This year over 400 families benefitted from this charity, which was made possible through the generous donations from the members of our Downey community.
