Hangin’ on to Holiday Cheer
By Paula Tesch
The Christmas trees have been hauled away by the Boy Scouts, and our New Year’s Resolutions have been bent and broken, but the holiday spirit is alive and well in our hearts.
Now that we’re all firmly entrenched in the hustle and bustle of 2013, we wanted to share a little inspiration for why we do the work we do.
Duarte works hard throughout the year to raise money for Cops That Care, a local charity that provides less fortunate families with a whole lot of Christmas toys, and even more holiday cheer. It started with one man–Mountain View Police Officer Ron Cooper–delivering toys in his car, and has grown to become a large-scale event providing toys to more than 1,700 children.
This year we captured the magic from our extravagant shopping spree to the heartwarming delivery.
