Thanksgiving Dinner Donation

It’s that time of year again — that is when we come together to feed 100 families a complete Thanksgiving meal.  This year we have been fortunate to have a business donate 100 turkeys, and volunteers from the Teen Voice High School Leadership group and the Police Activities League are helping with the collection of food items but we still need your support.

The 100 families are being selected by the principals at the Title I Schools and Westpark Community Center. This year we will be putting the Thanksgiving Baskets together on Monday, November 22 at Westpark at 5:00 p.m. The families are scheduled to pick up their dinner on Tuesday, November 23, at Westpark from 5:00 p.m. – 6:30 p.m.

If you would like to volunteer on these evenings, or can provide a food donation, please contact PAL’s Executive Director, Mario Robinson, at 805.654.7807.
Here is a list of items that each family will receive and we are also in need of these items for the dinner donation program.  All items donated need to be at Mario’s office by Monday, November 22 at noon. This will give us time to organize the food items and prepare for putting the baskets together for the families.

Thank you in advance to everyone for your generosity and time.

Food Items to Donate:

  • Stuffing
  • Cranberry sauce
  • Mashed potatoes
  • Gravy in can or package
  • Rolls or loaf of bread
  • Pies
  • Sodas or bottled juice
  • Canned vegetables

Ventura PAL Charity Carwash Fundraiser for Local Teen in Need of Prosthetic Arm


The car wash was a HUGE success.  On the day of the event we raised over $3,500!  That figure alone is incredible however, the donations kept pouring in and in September we presented a check to Nikko and his family for over $8500!

We again want to thank everyone in the community and all the individuals, organizations, and volunteers who donated their time and money to help the Slife Family in their time of need.


The Ventura Police Department’s (VPD) non-profit charitable foundation, the Ventura Police Activities League (PAL), will be holding a charity carwash fundraiser on Sunday, August 29, 2010 from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.  The carwash is being held for a local teen and his family, Nikko Slife, who are in need of financial assistance in order to acquire a new prosthetic arm for Nikko.  All proceeds from the carwash will go directly to the Slife family.  Please note, the car wash will be held in the Buena High parking lot on Wake Forest Avenue.  As a point of reference the lot is directly across the street from the US Post Office on Wake Forest.

Ventura PAL decided to hold the carwash fundraiser after receiving a letter from Nikko’s parents requesting any financial assistance in order to help pay for Nikko’s prosthetic.  Even after insurance and other donations the family was still in need of approximately $14,000.00.  Said Ventura PAL President, Sergeant Sam Arroyo, “PAL’s primary goal is helping to guide our youth to a brighter future and simply put, PAL is honored to pitch in and make a difference in not only Nikko’s life, but in the lives of his friends, family, and all those around him.”  Continued Arroyo, “Hopefully on Sunday with the community’s support we can get the Slife family closer to fulfilling their goal of getting a new prosthetic arm for Nikko.”

Nikko is fifteen years old and attends Buena High School.  He was born with one complete arm and one partially developed arm to the elbow. The prosthetic piece will allow Nikko to partake in all types of strength training, some sports activities, and other athletic activities.  The prosthetic piece has a quick release wrist and an array of attachments to help make Nikko’s movement easier.

Local business are also getting involved and Ventura PAL would like to thank the following companies for their support:  Chipotle Mexican Grill for providing discount coupons for one free burrito or burrito bowl with the donation of a car wash, Jersey Mikes for providing  buy one get one free coupons with the donation of a car wash, Mission Linen Supply for donating towels, Santino’s pizza for providing discount coupons with the donation of a car wash, and finally, Sheeler’s Pressure Washing and Detailing Mobile Car Wash for donating the pressure washer and spotless free water for that perfect carwash!

The VPD and Ventura PAL hope you swing by on Sunday to not only get your car washed but to make a difference in our community.  If you can’t make it by on Sunday and wish to make a donation please send your donation to Ventura PAL “Nikko Fund” at PO Box 3262, Ventura, CA 93006.  You can also visit to make a donation.  For additional information please contact Officer Frank Padilla at 805-207-8568.
