Who said Christmas is over? NYPD Santa delivers gifts to special needs kids

Reindeer on motorcycles and a masked Santa made a post-Christmas appearance at the Seton Foundation for Learning in Staten Island, rescheduled because of last month’s snow.

It was the eighth consecutive time that Highway Patrol Unit 5 of the NYPD made Christmas merrier for about 40 Staten Island children with special needs by donating and wrapping gifts and arranging for Santa and the reindeer.

“I thank God and the members of Highway 5 who in uncertain times were able to pull this together so we can bring joy and a good start for 2021,” Highway Patrol Unit 5’s commander, Lt. Joseph Bell, told Irene Spezzamonte of the Staten Island Advance.
