Monterey Police Department, Schools, and MDOT Partners Deliver Operation Santa
The Monterey Police Department (MPD) recognized that 2020 has been very difficult for families in our community. With the help of our local schools and partners in the Multi-Disciplinary Outreach Team (MDOT), MPD identified families who were in need this holiday season. Every employee of the Police Department and the The Rotary Club of Monterey donated to this project. These donations allowed the Monterey Police Department to provide gifts for 28 kids and gift cards for their 12 families. On Dec. 16, a caravan of Monterey Police vehicles, decorated for the season, picked up Santa at the Monterey Airport. The caravan traveled all around Monterey and hopefully, with some help from Santa, brightened some spirits along the way!
