For its 33rd annual holiday celebration, The Campbell Center associates enjoyed a virtual visit from the North Pole, courtesy of the Glendale Police Department (GPD). The party helped kick off the holiday season with the continued traditions of Christmas caroling, a visit from Santa, GPD gift bags and holiday bingo. There were 50 attendees at the event from The Campbell Center’s associates, staff and board members, and representatives of the GPD, including Chief Carl Povilaitis, Sergeant Ben Bateman and Officer Anthony Chacon.
This year’s celebration was held virtually to encourage safety regarding COVID-19 and maintain social distancing guidelines. In years past, representatives of the GPD visited the offices of The Campbell Center for the holiday party for a festive afternoon with The Campbell Center’s associates.
“It’s fantastic to see everyone and continue our tradition,” said David Fields, executive director of The Campbell Center. “We hope to be back in person for next year!”
The Campbell Center is a nonprofit organization that partners with adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities, empowering them to successfully gain independence and attain their desired outcomes through opportunity and choice.
