49th Precinct Christmas Toy Giveaway 

49th Precinct Christmas Toy Giveaway

By Robert Press

Children were waiting inside and along the side of the Starbucks on Eastchester Road for the Annual 49th Precinct Christmas Toy Giveaway. Community Affairs Detective Hall, Officers Bell and Powers were joined by members of the 49th Precinct Auxiliary Police, and commanding officer Deputy Inspector Kentish. 

Santa was helped by employees of Home Depot and the officers of the 49th precinct who gave the children the toys they picked out, and then there was a photo with Santa. Hot coffee, hot cocoa, and cookies were provided by Starbucks for everyone, and there were just enough toys for all the children.

Once the children picked out their toys it was time for a photo with Santa.

You can see the toys that were by the windows are gone, but there was still a game of Monopoly for this child.
