First through third-graders at Sun Terrace Elementary School in Concord will receive a special St. Patrick’s Day surprise at an afternoon assembly.
Concord’s Mayor Tim Grayson and Police Chief Guy Swanger will be on hand to deliver 65 Leap Frog pads, books and other educational materials to the school classrooms on Monday, March 17 at 1:30 p.m.
Isidro Llanos, who works for the City as a Recycling Theft Prevention Specialist in the Police Department, made the Leap Frog donation possible.
“In the past, I have assisted Leap Frog with donating their toys during the holidays. Through those contacts, I was able to connect Leap Frog with children in Concord schools,” said Llanos. Last year, Leap Frog donated 100 bi-lingual pads and books to children in the Monument community.
“This is a great example of how the police department is working to building strong relationships in the community,” says Chief Swanger. “We value community partnerships because we rely on that support and cooperation in order to effectively serve the residents of Concord.” Plans are underway to supply Leap Frog materials to four additional schools in Concord.
