Kids receive presents at this year's Police Activities League holiday dinner

Holiday cheer was alive and well Tuesday night as more than 150 low-income residents enjoyed tamales and tacos, decorated cookies, and opened personalized presents at the Cabrillo Pavilion Arts Center for the 14th annual Police Activities League (PAL) holiday dinner. PAL, which provided families a ride to the oceanfront venue, is a nonprofit that has been connecting police officers with underprivileged youth since 1999. “The families who are most in need are the ones who are here,” said Officer Brian Kerr, who was recently chosen to head PAL after veteran officer Ken Wojciechowski announced his retirement last month.
