Subject:     Christmas Visit To UCSF Children's Ward By Northern Station Officers

Officers from Northern Police Station will be visiting the UCSF Children’s hospital, on Parnassus Avenue on Thursday, December 22, 2005, at 2:30 PM.  Officers, one of which will be dressed as Santa Claus, along with a little elf will be visiting the children patients and distributing toys. The officers will also be providing food for the children’s parents. These officers raised $6500 from donations from members of the police department, the San Francisco Police Officers’ Association and the Emerald Society.  These officers purchased toys from a wish list provided by the hospital staff and were also able to purchase necessary items for the Children’s wards, including strollers and a portable DVD for the ambulance. This is the 3rd year in a row that these officers have visited the children. The event is expected to last about 2 hours.  Any media interested in covering this event should come to the main entrance of the hospital at 2:30PM to be escorted.
