32nd Police Precinct And The Migdol Family Foundation Host Holiday Party For Harlem Families

The 32nd Police Precinct of Harlem and the Migdol Family Foundation teamed up to host a jubilant holiday party for area families featuring presents, pizza, music and games.  More than 250 people enjoyed the party and received holiday gifts.

Families left the event with big smiles and warm feelings. The event, held Thursday at the Lt. Joseph P. Kennedy Community Center, provided a great opportunity for law enforcement professionals to connect with the Harlem neighborhood in which they work. State Senator Brian Benjamin joined in the fun, wishing families holiday cheer.

“The goal of this party is to build relationships with the community and to provide for the kids,” said Detective Osvaldo Collado. “It is the greatest reward to see the kids enjoying themselves and big smiles on their faces. Also, it gives us the chance to show the positive side of the police to the community.”

Jerry Migdol, founder of the Migdol Family Foundation added, “We are just happy to be part of this and be able to give back to the community we love.  It’s always so much fun to spend time with these kids and make their holiday special. There’s nothing better. We invite everyone to join us for upcoming Chanukah, Christmas and Kwanza events.”

One child, holding up his new basketball, summed it up, “This is a really great party. I’m so happy I came.”
