ECW is also accepting donations of new clothes, blankets, shoes, toys and cash. The biggest need is toys for all ages and genders. Donations may be delivered to the downstairs covered parking area at Estacada Community Center, 200 S.W. House Drive.

     -    The donations will be used to fulfill the wish lists of families that have been nominated. A detailed wish list will be posted Dec. 5 online at and on the Estacada Community Watch Facebook page.

"Spread the word. Christmas is coming and we want to make sure every family has a happy Christmas," the organization said.

Estacada Community Watch was formed to unite local citizens, businesses, law enforcement and government. The organization hopes to empower people to enrich their communities; help local law enforcement by becoming the eyes and ears of the community; protect the community against vandalism and violence; and provide community service in order to bring peace and prosperity to the town.

In addition to helping families this holiday season, free photos with Santa Claus are planned from 1-3 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 18, in the field next to the Estacada fire station.
