On Friday, September 20, 2019, The Detective Rafael Ramos Foundation held its Fourth Annual Memorial Backpack and School Supply giveaway at P.S. 59 in Brooklyn, New York. Over 700 children from P.S. 59 and P.S. 297 started the school year in the right direction by receiving a bookbag filled with school supplies and were treated to a block party. From a rock-climbing wall, games, face painting, art and crafts, bounce houses and interacting with many of New York Finest, it was a fun filled day for the all kids.
A special thanks to The New York Mets, The Legacy Center, DJ Al Rojas, Willy’B Balloons, Tuftex Balloons, Answer The Call, Katie Lusso, SasZee Photography and the entire NYPD family for making this day a success, we are grateful for your support.

As we continue to honor the memory of Detectives Rafael Ramos and Wenjian Liu, we are extremely thankful to everybody who continues to believe in our mission. Our goal is to make a child’s first interaction with a police officer a positive one and events like this are extremely important to making that a reality. Without your constant support, events like this would not be possible. We are looking forward to seeing you all at our Holiday Toy Drive in December. Stay tuned for more details.
