The Davenport Union of Professional Police and the Davenport Police Association held a toy drive for kids at a domestic violence shelter, hoping to brighten their holiday.
Some didn't even get out of their car, buzzing through the line with a bag full of goodies. Others, walked a check right into the Mobile Police Unit.
Either way Quad Citians were feeling generous, donating toys to kids at the Family Resources Domestic Violence Shelter.
"I hope more can contribute because this is something that's pretty much a crisis in this area and you don't want to leave the kids out or the mothers or the father whichever it may be." Henry Sierra, East Moline Resident, said.
Sierra and his family wanted to celebrate the holiday's this year by helping others.
"My daughter's spouse, his name is Rick Konan said, 'Dad, instead of giving me something for Christmas, donate to some place.'" Sierra said.
Officers who helped organize the drive are grateful. "It does make ya feel real good about the people who care in this community and want to help those that are a lot less fortunate." Sgt. Bruce McKee with the Davenport Police Department said.
These kids are pretty traumatized by being taken out of their homes, especially around the holidays and try to offer what we can to make their holidays happy.
