The Pasadena Police Air Operations Section and the Foothill Air Support Team (FAST) conducted their 11th annual Christmas Toy Drive at the Pediatrics Ward of Huntington Memorial Hospital. Pasadena Police Chief Phillip L. Sanchez, escorted Santa Claus and his flight suit clad “elves” as they arrived bearing gifts and holiday cheer in their own special rotor-equipped sleigh.

After visiting the hospital, the flight crews conducted a ground based mission where children impacted by domestic violence visited the North Pole (Police Heliport). This event was held in conjunction with Peace Over Violence. Peace Over Violence is an organization committed to serving domestic violence and sexual assault survivors in our community. “We are so appreciative of their generosity and commitment to serving survivors,” comments Peace Over Violence Program Director Sandy Monroy about the event.
