[ARCHIVED] Hero for a Day

The Eugene Police Department has teamed with A Family for Every Child, and is asking the community for donations to help support the first annual “Hero for a Day,” event, for boys in Foster care. Items needed for donation are; hero costumes, masks, caps, or sporting equipment.

This is an opportunity to help support young men, ages 2 – 18, who deserve to be treated like a Hero for a Day. The event is designed to be a gift for foster children in the community as well as to raise awareness of foster children in Oregon.

If any of your family members or friends have items that they wouldn’t mind donating because it doesn’t fit, or because it has been sitting in the back of the closet for too long, this is a great time and reason to donate. To donate, simply bring the item to the Eugene Police Headquarters building and drop it off in our donation box located in the entrance. The event is being held on April 6, and the last day to donate is April 5.
