Grateful Hearts Benefits LAPD and LAFD

Grateful Hearts at Warner Park, a fundraiser for the local LAPD and LAFD in the San Fernando Valley, was held to help provide funds for items and products the city cannot.  

The tremendous community event was produced by the West Valley Warner Center Chamber of Commerce, the largest chamber in the San Fernando Valley.  Due to the pandemic, the annual event was on hiatus, and this was its grand return.

The event, which took over the entire Warner Park as well as a couple of streets, boasted a car show, live music, a blood drive, a safety fair, pet adoptions, displays from the LAPD and LAFD, food trucks, informative booths from many different service-related organizations, bounce houses, Operation Gratitude care-package preparation for our troops, and so much more. 

One of the highlights was a “cook off” between the LAFD and LAPD to see who could provide the best barbecue.  The line for the barbecue stretched over 50 yards, and proceeds went to fund the LAPD and LAFD. The event was a grand slam home run.  It was huge. Attendance from the community was off the charts, and everybody had a great time.  It was a roaring return to one of the best events in the San Fernando Valley. Over $70,000.00 was raised over the course of the event, which truly shows that our community members have “grateful hearts.”  Well done!
