Police to don holiday beards
Placeholder Image

Ceres police officers will again be growing facial hair for the holiday season as part of the Ceres Police Beards for Kids Toy Drive that kicks off and goes until Dec. 23.

Ceres police will be partnering with the City of Ceres Recreation Division and Ceres Employee Activities Committee to collect donated unwrapped new toys for boys and girls aged from infants to 18. Toys may be dropped off at several locations, including the Ceres Police Department lobby, 2727 Third Street; the Ceres Community Center, 2701 Fourth Street; or at Dollar General in the Richland Shopping Center.

The toys will be distributed on Dec. 20 by Santa Claus and officers to families who've been identified by the city as needy by Ceres Partnership for Healthy Children.
