BTAC has already begun distributing Thanksgiving food. But the most intense time will begin this week and continue through mid-day on Wednesday, November 26th. The holiday food consists of the “traditional” items of turkey, (sometimes hams for Christmas), stuffing, potatoes, pies, etc., plus pancake mix and syrup.

Sergeant Claudio Losacco, President of the BPOA, commented, “The members of the Burbank Police Officers’ Association are grateful to be part of such a fantastic community. We are happy to support such a worthwhile mission. We hope that through this donation BTAC is able to assist and support our neighbors in the community who need help during the holiday season.”
