Did you catch yesterday’s “Presents With Police”? One resident went to Target unaware of the event and was moved to tears by the experience she walked into.
”I was at Target in Dartmouth this morning and there was a ton of New Bedford police shopping with kids! They were buying them gifts and pushing the carriage as each one picked out toys.
I was amazed as I watched these generous and giving officers and detectives strolling through the store with these kids! Number 1: I thought “ This is great! – it is showing these kids that ‘The police are our friends.’
Also, they are giving these children a chance to have a special Christmas that they may not have had if it wasn’t for them.
As I was going down a toy aisle I noticed a little girl around 8 years old with an officer looking at toys she may want and I heard her say ‘I miss my bed, now all I have is a couch.’ I started to cry and had to walk away.
Thank you New Bedford Police Department for what you did today for these children! You’re the best!” – Diane Methia.
