It’s December and The Brooklyn Hospital Center (TBHC) pulls out all the stops to make its hospital a more festive place for patients, families, visitors and staff, but they don’t do it alone. On December 14, pediatric patients as well as children from a nearby shelter were the recipients of toys from the New York Police Department 88th Precinct Patrol and Borough Brooklyn North. NYPD came in with Batman and his exotic cars collection (and some other special super heroes), much to the delight of the kids (and adults!).

TBHC Sends Kids Back to School with Backpacks and Supplies
In cooperation with Long Island University (LIU), the event was held at LIU’s Paramount Gym, 1 University Place in Brooklyn. Each child enjoyed a day of fun activities, food and music and left with a free backpack filled with September school supplies. The event was headed by Lori Lerma, Director of the Child Life Program at TBHC. “We want our kids and their brothers and sisters to succeed at school. Lack of the ability to cover the cost of supplies should not be a barrier to educational success. And we wanted them to have fun and know that we believe in them!” says Lerma.
