The City of Citrus Heights Fourth Annual Holiday Referral Program is officially under way, according to an official press release.

The Citrus Heights Police Department and the City of Citrus Heights have again partnered with various local service clubs, schools, neighborhoods, businesses, and community members to brighten the holidays for several Citrus Heights families. The collaborative effort specifically targets assistance to families residing in the City of Citrus Heights. Last year the City worked with over 40 service clubs, business groups, social clubs, churches, schools, and community members to assist 60 families, including 152 children and 108 adults.

This unique community-involved program was created to provide participating families with food, household items, and toys/clothes for the children. The program relies heavily on the community to help make the effort a success, and participation can include the donation of items, adopting a family, volunteering, or all of the above.

Community members can donate or nominate a family who needs assistance by filling out a referral form. To refer a family for consideration, an application must be completed and submitted to CHPD. The “Holiday Referral Program Application” can be picked up at the front counter of CHPD or found online at Completed referrals can either be dropped off at the department or mailed to CHPD at 6315 Fountain Square Drive, Citrus Heights, California, 95621. Applications will be accepted from Monday, November 5 through Wednesday, November 21, 2012.

Donations will be accepted from November 26 to December 14, 2012. Donations can be dropped off at the Citrus Heights Police Department located at 6315 Fountain Square Drive between the hours of 8am-5pm Monday through Friday, or Saturdays between 9am-2pm.
