Kids, Cops & Christmas was a tremendous success, collecting record numbers of toys. Colonel James Mendonca, distributed toys to children and presented checks to charitable organizations on behalf of R.I. Police Chiefs’ Association. The holiday season can be joyous, yet can be extremely difficult as well financially for many families. This event – now in its 11th year – is a way that members of law enforcement, and the business community, can unite in a common goal to make Christmas a little merrier and brighter than it might have been for many a child if not for the generosity and devotion of all those involved.
