Oxnard’s First Responders Joined Target at the Collection to Host the Seventh Annual Heroes and Helpers Event

On December 14, 2017 at 8:00 AM the Oxnard Police and Fire Departments, in conjunction with Target at the Collection, were proud to host the Seventh Annual Heroes & Helpers event. The Heroes & Helpers program fosters strong community relationships by pairing public safety officials with youth to shop for the children’s families during the holidays. This year, thirty (30) well deserving children from the Oxnard School District were chosen to shop with our first responders and Target team members. Students were selected by the School Resource Officers in partnership with the school principals and counselors. Students had a special meet and greet with Santa and Mrs. Claus before enjoying a $200 shopping spree.

This event could not be made possible without the generous donations of sponsors and volunteers.
