A group of local kids stopped by the NYPD’s 100th Precinct to help them start their week right. In an effort spearheaded by the kids, the Allen families of Broad Channel brought local officers a breakfast feast on Monday, June 29, to show them their support.
“In our families, we talk to our kids often about the important jobs the police do and how supporting them is so important,” Erica Allen said. “With everything going on, the kids came to us and asked if we could do something to show the officers that we appreciate them.”
The families started a 50/50 among family and friends and were able to raise $1000. One lucky winner took home half, and the Allen families used the other $500 to purchase 10 dozen bagels, plus cream cheeses and butter, 10 dozen donuts and coffee. On Monday morning, the kids, including Michael (12), Charlotte (2), Makenzie (8), Morgan (10), Aubrey (3), Sydney (7), Christopher (5), and Daniel (11), hand delivered the feast to the officers at the 100th Precinct.
“The kids were all so happy that they could do something for the officers. They all wanted to hold the boxes and each hand something to the officers. It was very sweet and we love that this was something that they wanted to do,” Allen said.
