  What's New

Back To News

The start of school after the holidays often brings with it new school clothes and shoes. However, for some less fortunate children, that is not the case. These children are subjected to bullying and teasing because they don’t have appropriate footwear. New shoes and socks would help build their confidence and allow them to focus on their studies.

The Chula Vista Police Department (CVPD) is assisting local students by conducting their third annual School Resource Officer Non-Profit Shoes and Socks Give-Away. This event was a tremendous success last year thanks to the generous contributions from the Chula Vista community. CVPD members are requesting monetary donations once again to provide shoes and socks for 1,000 boys and girls. School Resource Officers are working closely with school principals, school nurses, and South Bay Community Services counselors to identify boys and girls under 18 years of age who live, go to school or attend counseling services in Chula Vista.

To help provide footwear to these children, please send your monetary donation to the Chula Vista Police Department, ATTN: Officer Hughes, SRO Unit, 315 Fourth Avenue, Chula Vista, CA 91910. Checks should be made payable to "Chula Vista Police Foundation;" please include “SRO Shoe and Sock event” on the memo section. The Chula Vista Police Foundation is a 501(c)3 tax exempt organization and all donations are tax deductible.

Identified children will be invited to the Payless Shoe Source, 555 Broadway, in the Chula Vista Shopping Center, on February 24 at 8 a.m. to select their new socks and shoes. For more information, please call (619) 409-5460 or e-mail
