The Suffolk County Police Department is partnering with Target to give underprivileged children in Suffolk County a holiday shopping experience.

Dozens of children will participate in Target’s nationwide program known as Heroes & Helpers, during which, the children, who are between 4 and 16 years old, will each receive a $50 gift card that they can spend at Target.

Suffolk County Police officers, as well as members of the Suffolk County Police Explorers program, a public service group for young adults, will assist the children during their shopping trip. The children can spend the gift cards on anything in the store and Target will supply snacks during the event.
