Officers buy back-to-school supplies for fifth-graderPosted: Updated:
Some police officers in New Rochelle reached into their own pockets to help one Hudson Valley student go back to school in style.
A fifth-grader's father recently lost his job, so officers McCullough and Velasco stepped in to help buy school supplies.
The officers got a copy of her list, went shopping, and then surprised her with some brand new supplies. "To have a beautiful fifth-grader smile at you and have tears in her eyes when you bring all her school supplies, it's rewarding, something we try to do on a daily basis when we can," says New Rochelle Police Officer McCullough.
The officers say the little girl was especially ecstatic to receive her new purple earbuds.
