Officers from the Los Angeles Police Department’s Rampart and Records and Identification divisions visited the Blind Children’s Center in east Hollywood on Dec. 19 to spread holiday cheer among students, their families and staff. For nearly 30 years, personnel from the LAPD and representatives of the Eagle & Badge Foundation, which is part of the Los Angeles Police Protective League, have visited the Blind Children’s Center for a holiday party. Officers arrived with lights and sirens activated and brought Santa Claus, who posed for photographs with students and handed out gifts. The festive celebration included a special holiday performance by the children.
The Blind Children’s Center, a nonprofit located at 4120 Marathon St., serves approximately 100 children who are blind or visually impaired.
