12-20-09- Solidad Flores,13, of Atresia and her brother Gerardo,14, with gifts and a food basket at the L.A. County Sheriffs Department, Lakewood station. Sheriff's Deputies treated 50 local families to a Christmas surprise, complete with gifts and a dinner as part of their annual charity drive for the community. This year's drive is much smaller, about half the size of the usual give-away. Deputies gave away gifts and and full fixings for a Christmas meal. Santa payed a visit and some of the children received a new bike. The families in need are from the Lakewood Station area and are chosen by the Sheriff's department. The turkey's, hams and stuffing were donated by Fresh&Easy and helped the station to buy gifts for the children.
