Hayward police officers give back on Halloween
Submitted By Lt. Jim Denholm, Hayward PD
The Hayward Police Department (HPD) hosted its annual ÒHalloween Costume GiveawayÓ on Thursday, October 29, 2015 at Hayward City Hall. This is the fifth year that HPD has hosted the event, making Halloween brighter for less fortunate families in Hayward. Over 250 participants were selected by their respective elementary school instructors or by the parent liaison of the elementary school.
The event was made possible through donations from American Licorice Company in Union City, Annabelle Candy Company in Hayward, Party City in Union City and Dublin, Lucky Grocery Store in Hayward, Hayward Police Chief Diane Urban, Hayward Police Officers Association, and Hayward Promise Neighborhood. Additionally, 19 businesses in downtown Hayward provided donated candies to the children who donned their costumes and trick-or-treated through town.
