On Tuesday, a group of children battling cancer met with New York’s finest at NYPD headquarters.
The children travelled to New York City from cities as far away as Miami, Chicago, and Houston. They greeted at One Police Plaza, where they met New York City police officers.
Sunshine Kids, a non-profit organization dedicated to providing positive group activities. They also provide emotional support to children with cancer across North America, organized the meet-up.
The kids got a behind-the-scenes look at the country’s most significant police force. They met Officers from various units outside the New York Police Department headquarters.
The children greeted by the NYPD’s mounted unit and their horse pals, the NYPD K-9 unit. Among them are the Emergency Service Unit and the Highway Patrol.
Officers from various units gathered outside the New York Police Department headquarters honoured to host and learn from them.”
The NYPD has collaborated with Sunshine Kids, founded in 1982, to provide meet-ups like Tuesdays for several years.
