The Pearland Police Department is joined by the Pearland Police Academy to bring toys from around the Pearland area to the Pearland Neighborhood Center. Here the toys are sorted by age groups and shelved in the Center’s toy room. Santa’s Helpers gather the names of good little boys and girls and prepare large bags of toys to go out to families in the Pearland area.
Hundreds of toys come in as the entry fee to the Toys for Tots Basketball Game each year. Pearland Police officers play against the Pearland Firemen for the annual Toys for Tots ball game held at Robert Turner High School in Pearland.
Since 1987, the Pearland Neighborhood Center has been helping families with Christmas from the many toys drives and food drives held in the area. To volunteer, adopt a family, sign up for services or join the board of directors for the Pearland Neighborhood call 281-485-1987 for information.
