The Redwood City Police Activities League (PAL) is asking community members to “be the best pal” and donate to the PAL COVID-19 fundraiser.
Donated funds will help the organization create “Shelter-in-Place Family Care Packages” including children’s books, art materials, board games, and other learning and playtime supplies. Such supplies, according to PAL, help kids feel equipped for school assignments from home and bring the family together through fun activities.
The organization says it’s collaborating with the Redwood City Police Department, Redwood City Education Foundation and Redwood City School District to ensure materials land in the hands of the children who need it most.
All of the packages will be assembled and delivered over the next weeks by PAL staff, and appropriate measures will be taken to ensure everyone’s safe, PAL stated.
