Cops & Gobblers COVID-19 Relief
As the COVID-19 crisis and shelter in place continues, we expect to see an increase in need as our community members will experience significant challenges. The Cops & Gobblers program, in partnership with the Mountain View Police Officers’ Association and Mountain View Public Safety Foundation, will be providing $50 Safeway gift cards for families in need.
We will be working with Community Services Agency, police and fire staff as well as other community organizations to identify the families in need and distribute the gift cards as quickly as possible. We are a strong community and we will get through these difficult times by working together for the good of everyone.
If you’d like to help contribute to the gift cards, please consider making a donation below. All funds donated go directly towards helping families in need.
Every year, we gather to celebrate community and good cheer by sharing with those who are in need.
Each November, MVPSF, MVPD and community volunteers assemble and help deliver 400 food baskets for the annual Cops & Gobblers Thanksgiving Food Drive.
Cops & Gobblers stared in 1997 by MVPD Officer Steve Mello (now retired) delivering food baskets for 15 families in need. Now, 20 years later, the program is led by retired MVPD Captain Bruce Barsi as well as Amber Wilson and provides over 400 food baskets each year for families in need.
This annual gathering is always a success thanks to the very generous donations of those in and around Mountain View. You can help provide a basket to a family by donating.
We would like to thank our Community Partners who help to make this program possible.
