Posted: Updated:
HEWLETT -

Nassau County police officers helped brighten the holidays for some disadvantaged children Saturday with a toy store shopping spree. 

More than 100 homeless and disadvantaged children were allotted $120 to buy whatever toys they wanted at Matty's Toy Stop in Hewlett. 

The money came from a donation by the Nassau Police Benevolent Association and the Nassau County Police Department Foundation.

Santa Claus was also in attendance at the store.
