Temple U. Police Host Annual Holiday Kids Party

Temple University Police will host their annual Children’s Holiday Party at The Liacouras Center on Sunday, December 2 at 11a.m.  For more than 20 years, Temple University’s Department of Campus Safety Services has hosted a holiday party for children and their families in the North Philadelphia community.  The party is organized by members of the department and aided by volunteers from Temple’s student organizations and community relations professionals.

The party will feature entertainment by Temple students and student athletes, community performers, a live parrot show, face painting, music and fun for the whole family.  Staying true to their commitment as partners in the community, each child will receive a gift, in addition to having their picture taken with Santa.

“The Children’s Holiday Party would not be possible without the hard work and generosity of our volunteers, especially the management and staff of The Liacouras Center who graciously open their doors each year to our community’s children,” said Temple University Police Captain, Eileen Bradley.
