More than 1,700 children are expected to gather at the Mountain View Police Department Dec. 22 for the department's fifth annual "Cops That Care" holiday gift-giving event.
The event was started by Officer Ron Cooper and provides toys and other gifts to children whose families may not be able to afford to buy them.
The department welcomes donations of gifts for the Dec. 22 event, which may be dropped off at the police/fire auditorium at 1000 Villa St.
The gift-giving event will be 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Dec. 22. Parents attending with their children will be asked to show identification or proof of their children's affiliation to Mountain View.
