Pearland PD triumphs over Pasadena for Toys for Tots

15540827_10154380486302701_2694799677136679252_oThe Pearland Toys for Tots charity basketball game and toy drive was once again a great success. On Saturday December 10, 2016, the Pearland Police Department’s basketball team beat the Pasadena Police Department’s basketball team with a final score of 64 to 62.

An amazing milestone was achieved with this year’s game: Officer Robert DaSilva participated in his 20th annual game! Officer DaSilva shows his dedication to this worthy cause every year by planning months in advance. He plans the practices, half-time events and sponsorship. Without him, this event could have been as much of a success this year! A special thank you goes out to Officer Robert DaSilva!

We received enough toys and donations to provide Christmas gifts to the 310 families who registered for assistance with the Pearland Neighborhood Center. In those 310 families, there were 746 children who will receive at least 7 to 8 presents for Christmas. The Pearland Neighborhood Center is still willing to assistant families until this Friday, Dec. 16. Thank you to all those involved that helped the Pearland Police Department with another successful toy drive.
