What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

As I started to see a trend of hate towards Law Enforcement Officers, I created a goal in 2013 to start a trend of appreciating those who serve and protect. Everyday they put their lives on the line to help others in need. As I watched my husband serve & protect the people of California, I decided to start with his department since they are the people I knew. It just so happened that the following year was the 85th Anniversary of the California Highway Patrol. I knew that was a great place to start. The original goal still remained to appreciate all agencies. Having a small budget, I designed & created 11,000 Commemorative Pins for all those who serve in the Department. The ultimate goal is to appreciate everyone who serves & protects.

The goal of CHP Appreciation Day, is to continue to show the men and women who serve & protect, that they are appreciated, as it coincides with the Anniversary.

Our programs

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Christmas Miracles

Christmas Miracles started in Christmas 2008. One year after a dear friend lost her husband while trying to save 2 kids in Wrightwood on Christmas Day, 2007. I knew, after losing my Mom, in 2007, the first Christmas would be tough. So, I worked to gather donations. With the money we collected, my girls and I purchased lots of toys to give to the 4 Claridad girls. A few days before Christmas, we took Grandma, Mom & the 4 girls to Mimi's Cafe, where we ate dinner & then had Santa come and pass out gifts to everyone. It was a special moment for all of us. ❤️

Christmas Miracles continues, every year, blessing more families with "gifts of love."

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

We are looking to continue to show appreciation to our State Agency, the California Highway Patrol and other law enforcement communities.

We also wish to bring hope to kids in need during Christmas time with a fun Christmas party.

We will continue to work with our existing partners and volunteers to continue to make each program a success.

We have established a great sense of community with the volunteers we work with and know they look forward to bringing a smile to others, just as much as we do. Together, we can make it work.

So far we have accomplished our goals with our two main programs, CHP Appreciation Day & Christmas Miracles. Our hope is that we continue to be able to work with our volunteers to help more people and create more programs.
