Target, police partner up for 4th annual ‘Heroes and Helpers’ event on Long Island

Christmas came early for about 50 children on Long Island during the fourth annual “Heroes and Helpers” program.

The community event pairs financially disadvantaged children with Nassau County Police Officers for a free shopping spree to buy holiday gifts for their families.

“Heroes and Helpers” is funded by Target and the NCPD foundation and aims to build stronger community relations between cops, local towns and children.
