‘Heroes and Helpers’: Police, actor Donnie Wahlberg buy gifts for underserved kids, families at NJ Target

Posted: Updated:

Police in Fort Lee, as well as singer and actor Donnie Wahlberg, teamed up Wednesday to spread some holiday cheer at a local Target.

The visit is part of the “Heroes and Helpers” program, where police and Target team together to purchase gifts for underserved kids and their families during the holidays.

Wahlberg took a selfie with police officers at the store, and helped buy gifts for the kids and their families this holiday season.

The store worked with agencies to host over 275 events at various Targets back in December 2017 within the United States.
