Happy Holidays and other tidbits of news

Last night was the Dunwoody Police, Christmas for Kids event which touched my heart by seeing the smiles on so many young faces. Thank you to those who donated toys and food for the event, to those who made elf costumes, decorated cookies and served food. I am so proud of the Dunwoody Police Department for organizing and hosting this event for our community, I am sure it will be the first for many years to follow.

Kudos to a young man by the name Rishi Gowda who donated all of his birthday gifts to help other kids this Christmas. To see Rishi and to get a feel for the evenings activities, please watch the video here.

Happy Hanukkah to my Jewish friends on this eighth night of the holiday.
