Concord Schoolkids Score With LeapFrog Donations!

City's recycling-theft specialist deserves the credit for coordinating the donations. Monte Gardens students receive the learning materials today -- Thursday -- in a school assembly.

Isidro Llanos, who works for Concord as a Recycling Theft Prevention Specialist in the Police Department, made the Leap Frog donation possible.

Classrooms at four elementary schools in Concord are receiving LeapFrog pads, books and other educational materials, made possible through the Concord Police Department.

Elected officials and staff were on hand at Wren Elementary on Tuesday at 8:30 a.m. for the first presentation.

Today -- Thursday -- it is Monte Gardens Elementary's turn with a 10:15 a.m. assembly.

Next up: Silverwood Elementary on April 29 at 10:30 a.m. and El Monte Elementary on April 30 at 10:30 a.m.

Isidro Llanos, who works for the City as a Recycling Theft Prevention Specialist in the Police Department, made the LeapFrog donation possible.

 “In the past, I have assisted LeapFrog with donating their toys during the holidays. Through those contacts, I was able to connect LeapFrog with children in Concord schools,” said Llanos. 

LeapFrog donated 1,000 bi-lingual pads and books to children in the Monument community last year, and additional learning materials to students at Sun Terrace Elementary earlier this year.

“This is a great example of how the police department is working to building strong relationships in the community,” says Chief Guy Swanger. “We value community partnerships because we rely on that support and cooperation in order to effectively serve the residents of Concord.”

Well, I guess this makes up for having drug addicted K9 officers. Wait, it doesn't.
