We love this!

The Sacramento Police Department and Sacramento Fire have teamed up to light up the night for kids hospitalized at Shriner’s this Christmas and it’s beautiful. 

Sac PD Community Outreach Coordinator Tammy Hall says the idea came from an officer who transferred here from Ohio, where he’d heard about it. A little digging, Hall says, reveals the idea actually originated in Providence, Rhode Island at the Hasbro Children’s Hospital, and it is now spreading to police and fire departments and children’s hospitals in major cities across the country. One such effort in Detroit happens monthly, year round.

For now, Hall says, there are no plans here to carry it beyond Christmas but she says they are doing one more: Christmas eve at 7:30. She says the public is invited to attend (bring a flashlight, glow sticks, a light saber…whatever!). She says just look for the assembling fire trucks and police cars starting around 6:45. Sounds like a fun thing for the whole family. More details, just check out the Sac PD’s Facebook page.
