Join MPD 2nd District in Giving to Children in Need

Each year the police of the MPD Second District host 50 children with unique needs for a special holiday event at the police headquarters that features a visit from Santa Claus.  As part of the event, each child receives a special care package.  While our local police officers have already purchased items for these care packages, they still need board games, toys, art supplies and books to give to the children.

Anyone who is interested in supporting this effort can bring new, unwrapped toys, games or books to the Second District Headquarters at 3320 Idaho Avenue, NW and leave them in the marked box in the main lobby before December 13th.

For additional information, residents can contact Brian Turmail, Vice Chairman of the Citizens Advisory Council for the Second District, (  or Officer Rhonda Hardy (
