Citrus Heights police and city officials are accepting referrals for their annual holiday charity effort for needy families.
Referral forms can be found at the front counter of the Citrus Heights Police Department, 6315 Fountain Square Drive, or online at www.citrusheightspd.net. Completed referrals should be dropped off at the front counter or mailed. Applications will be accepted until Monday, Nov. 14.
Program organizers hope to "adopt" 100 families for the program.
The annual program is a joint effort between Citrus Heights police and the city that provides food, household items and toys and clothes for children. Partners include local service clubs, schools, neighborhoods, businesses and community members.
Anyone interested in "adopting" a family, donating items or who has questions about the program should email Cassandra Roesser at firstname.lastname@example.org or call (916) 727-5561.
