All ears: Police officers from the 69th Precinct listened intently to the kids they are counseling during the kick-off session of the Police Department and Big Brothers Big Sisters’s mentorship program on Nov. 14.
Families this Thanksgiving will not go hungry thanks to New York Yankees Dellin Betances, The Rosemark Group & Whole Foods Market. The event will be held at the Polo Grounds Community Center in Harlem operated in conjunction with The Police Athletic League (PAL).
The Police Athletic League hosted its 46th annual dinner, bringing in more than $1.3 million to help provide recreational, educational and social activities for 30,000 boys and girls.
This year the Police Athletic League helped more than 1,500 teens and young adults get job experience through the PAL’s Summer Youth Employment Program and at the 113th Precinct eight residents of southeast Queens were under the mentorship of Community Affairs Detective Tanya Duhaney in Jamaica.
The Police Athletic League is famous for the recreational programs it runs for children during the summer, as well as for the annual “Police Commissioner for a Day” essay contest it sponsors for students.
