Six Points For Kids (SPFK) is an employee-driven program of the Orange County Sheriff’s Department (OCSD). SPFK was conceived and started by front-line deputies to give back to children and teens in our local community. The goal of SPFK is to equip kids for success. It achieves its mission by partnering with various local charities and holding fundraising events. All OCSD personnel are encouraged to get involved. SPFK provides OCSD with opportunities to make an immediate, identifiable, positive impression in the lives of needy children in our community.

Shop With A Cop
SPFK teamed up with Target in Stanton to benefit youth at Theriault House, an emergency shelter managed by the Illumination Foundation. With support from Southern California Gas, SPFK provided 22 children with gift cards of $100 to purchase what they wanted most for the holidays.
CHOC Halloween Boo Bash
SPFK has been privileged to take part in the Children’s Hospital of Orange County to personally greet nearly 100 excited patients on Halloween. It was incredibly heartwarming to interact with the children whose spirits shined brightly despite their medical issues.
Special Olympics OC Spring and Fall Regional Games
More than 50 OCSD uniformed personnel greeted Special Olympic athletes as they made their entrance during the Opening Ceremony of the Orange County Regional Spring and Fall Games. OCSD personnel cheered on these inspiring athletes with words of encouragement and high fives.
School Supply Drive
In 2019, SPFK was able to assemble 150 backpacks filled with school supplies generously donated by OCSD personnel. The backpacks were distributed throughout Orange County to Laura’s House, Casa Youth Shelter and El Modena Family Resources Center.
HomeAid’s Builders 4 Babies
SPFK deputies donated their time, construction skills and more than 9,000 diaper to HomeAid Orange County at their Builders 4 Babies event. The team created the façade of an old western Sheriff’s Office out of diaper boxes.
Miracles for Kids Basket Deliveries
More than 40 SPFK volunteers partnered with Miracles for Kids to deliver Spring comfort baskets, food and household supplies to Orange County families with critically ill children
Chemo Care Bags
SPFK partnered with other local law enforcement agencies to sponsor and deliver care packages for patients receiving chemotherapy at the Compassionate Care Center in Fountain Valley.
Blind Children's Learning Center Pre-Kindergarten Graduation & Fieldtrip
SPFK sponsored the graduation party of 15 pre-kindergarten students at the Blind Children’s Learning Center. It was a fun-filled day at Boomers Irvine! SPFK was also on hand at the graduation to celebrate the accomplishments of these amazing children.
KaBOOM Playground Build
SPFK, in partnership with Community Action Partnership of OC, worked side-by-side with community members in one of our neediest neighborhoods to build a new KaBOOM! Playground for at-risk kids in just 6 hours! The playground located at Anaheim Independencia Family Resource Center will serve hundreds of kids and families.
Packages for Patriots
SPFK partnered with teens in Casa Youth Shelter’s Youth Leadership Program to assemble more than 50 holiday care packages for military troops overseas. SPFK worked with, San Pedro Packages For Patriots, who provided the boxes and will ship them to the troops. Each care package reaches a minimum of 10 people, so SPFK and the teens impacted the lives of more than 500 military men and women overseas during the holiday season.
