HNLEA president, Joe Perez said, "distributing over 1000 food baskets far exceeded HNLEA's expectations, but it's a testament to the human spirit displayed by many of our Police Officers, business owners, and the community members who now help prepare and distribute the food baskets. For the most part the Annual Christmas Basket food drive is our primary yearly event. Ninety percent of the donations are in the way of food from MEGA Mart a local community-based business."
HNLEA Vice President, Miguel Core said, "I'm very happy we can help our community during these tough times. It is especially gratifying to see the smiles on the faces of the children when they receive a bicycle for Christmas during our food drive."

But events such as this brings us in contact with the community's needs and represent the positive side of what our police officers are really about. Helping the community."
