The Dunwoody Police Department Christmas for Kids (CFK) program began in 2009 with the goal of bringing our community together to collect new and unwrapped gifts for Dunwoody’s under-privileged children between the ages of newborn to 15 years old.
Once gifts are collected, the Dunwoody Police Department invites members of the community to join our CFK team for a "Wrap-Up Event" in early December to personalize a bag of individually wrapped gifts for each of the 60 or so children who are honored at a private Christmas party later in the month. Santa himself (along with his Elves and perhaps a Toy Soldier or two!) appears at the private event to spend quality one-on-one time with our honored guests and to distribute the gifts personally.
CFK is unique in that the Christmas party is an intimate affair for the pre-registered children and their parents only. Keeping the party private allows our CFK team to focus only on what’s important – the children and the joys of giving.
Christmas for Kids is a community effort and is only made possible by the generosity of our citizens, businesses, and other local organizations.
