EAST NEW YORK -

Target teamed up with the NYPD in East New York Saturday to make the holidays bright for 32 children.

Officers from the 75th Precinct treated the children to a shopping spree as part of the Heroes to Helpers program.

The precinct contacted local schools to see which students needed the boost the most.

Each child received a $100 gift card to choose anything they wanted.

Nicodemus Brown, of East New York, used his money on a Power Rangers power sword, Transformers and Twister.

Officer Rodney Greenidge says the event strengthens the relationship with the community.
