The bus made an appearance at 2 great city events today! First stop… the Tustin Police Department Open House where the city gathered together to celebrate their local heroes at Tustin PD. Last stop… Irvine DARE Movie Night where the kids in Irvine come to thank their DARE officers and to celebrate the year with a movie on the lawn. This year’s movie choice… Frozen! At both events, our bus served as a station for kids to come and write letters of thanks to their local public safety heroes. Fun day indeed!

The Team Kids Challenge kicked off this morning at Bonita Canyon Elementary in Irvine! There’s a lot of St. Patty’s green here! Thanks Irvine Police Department DARE Officer Mike Frei for inspiring the kids!
Deerfield Elementary in Irvine, CA continues to deliver amazing Team Kids Challenge Programs year after year thanks to a tradition of amazing leadership from the STUDENTS, Principal Kathy McKeown and staff, and the unstoppable parent volunteer duo of Holiday and Sandi. This year Irvine DARE Officer Mat Aragon knocked it out of the ballpark representing IPD AND Team Kids. He clearly enjoyed the carnival, as he sports his new hairstyle and manicure! Thank you all for continuing to share your enthusiasm and support to empower the amazing students at Deerfield!
