Portales, NM- Once again, this year, the City of Portales is managing the Mayor’s Christmas Toy Drive: Operation Santa Cop program. The “Lighting of the Tree” ceremony will be on Monday, November 16 beginning at 6:30 p.m. at the Portales City Hall located at 100 West 1st Street in downtown Portales.
This program is structured to provide for children in the community that might not otherwise receive anything for Christmas. This is a community driven program that attributes its success to the community’s continued participation and help! Ornaments representing local children will be placed on the Christmas tree in City Hall and can be chosen starting November 16th during the lighting ceremony.
We ask that the gifts be brought back to City Hall by Monday, December 4th.
