Can’t Stop, Won’t Stop Holiday Celebrations!

With so many City-sponsored holiday celebrations around town, it was hard not to feel holiday cheer throughout Lauderhill. Here is a quick recap of some of the magical moments we shared with our residents.

Santa Deliveries

From December 16th through December 19th, Santa, Frosty, Rudolph, and friends visited Lauderhill kids at their homes to provide a magical night of enchantment! These North Pole pals delivered gifts, left notes, sung carols, and spread all-around holiday joy to families.

A special thank you to Ignite Empowerment Inc. for donating gifts!

Secret Santa

On December 18, 2019, the Lauderhill Police Department hosted the annual “Secret Santa” holiday toy give-away. During this event, Lauderhill Police Chief Constance Stanley (A.K.A. Secret Santa) along with her staff visited each of our elementary schools and presented a bicycle and a bag of toys to deserving students from each school. The students were especially elected by their school principal and staff to receive this honorable recognition.  The selection criteria included academics, good citizenship, and overall conduct.

Shop with a Cop

On Thursday, December 19, 2019, the Lauderhill Police Department hosted “Shop With-A-Cop” holiday shopping spree. Children from Lauderhill schools were selected by their principals based on good grades and behavior to go shopping for holiday gifts with their neighborhood police. The event kicked off at 8:30 am at the Lauderhill Police Department, where the participants were welcomed with a holiday breakfast. 

After their holiday breakfast at the police department, the children were taken to the Target Super Store located at the Coral Ridge Mall, for their shopping spree. Besides setting time aside from their busy store hours so that the participating students could shop with members from the Lauderhill Police, Target Superstore also hosted a holiday lunch and an amazing ceremony to close the event.
