The NYPD Community Affairs’ annual Holiday Sleigh Ride hit the streets Friday.
From John F. Kennedy International Airport to the Verrazano Bridge, officers made their way across the city. They were greeted with excitement from both children and adults.
Gifts that were donated by a number of organizations, including the First Responders Children’s Foundation and the NYC Police Foundation, were handed out by NYPD officers.
“When they see the cops in this light, these kids will be raised up to know that we here for them, doing positive things. They'll never forget things like this,” says NYPD Captain Tarik Shephard.
The parade will also be held on Sunday and Monday after Saturday’s event was canceled due to inclement weather. The stops they’ll be making can be found here.
