4th Annual Operation Christmas Shoes. 

This year funding was denied by the regular department. In order to keep the program going the SWAT team donated money from their own pockets. Each of the children were given a pair of Converse tennis shoes, a Converse tshirt and a pair of socks. Fun was had by all as they shared an afternoon with the SWAT team and were able to play in the “BearCat”. The children are in a Special needs program with the Ventura County Office of Education.
