The Storm Lake Police Association's annual Gloves of Love program is getting underway today (Tues).

This marks the 16th year that the Police Association has placed a Christmas Tree in the lobby of the Police Administration Building. Citizens are invited to join Association members in hanging children's gloves and other items of donated clothing or non-perishable food items on or near the tree. The program will run until Wednesday, December 14th.

After collecting the donated items, the Police Association will take all of the donated items to the local Upper Des Moines Opportunity office to be distributed to children and families in need throughout the community.

Citizens are invited to stop by the Storm Lake Police Department lobby and place their donated items on or near the Christmas Tree, or give them to on-duty staff at the facility. The Police Department lobby is open from 8am to 4pm Monday through Friday. For additional information, contact Storm Lake Police at 732-8010.
