NORWALK, Conn. -- Thirty-seven bikes went to some lucky kids when the Norwalk Police Department Community Police Unit hosted its annual Children’s Holiday Party at Columbus Magnet School on Dec. 12.
The Norwalk P.A.L. sponsored the party. Lunch, entertainment and gifts were handed out to 150 children.
The B.J. Ryan’s Foundation provided food for the event and Santa, played by retired police officer Joe Kubik, distributed the presents.
Community Police Sergeant Tom Fern said that, unfortunately for some in Norwalk, the holiday season is just like any other day, as they struggle to put another meal on the table.
"The Norwalk Police Department and its many generous sponsors work hard to share the gift of giving with our city’s most vulnerable children so they too can experience the warmth of the holiday season."
