This September 2016, The Detective Rafael Ramos Foundation in partnership with The Legacy Center and the NYPD, delivered backpacks filled with much needed school supplies to the children of P.S 59 in Bedstuy, Brooklyn and P.S 151 in Bushwick, Brooklyn.
Our goal is to continue building trust between police and community as we had local police officers from the NYPD distribute the backpacks to the children. While both schools were special in their own way, having a backpack outreach just one block away from where we lost our beloved heroes Rafael Ramos and Wenjien(Joe) Liu was so meaningful to us. We were able to connect in the very community where we experienced our most tragic loss. Detective Ramos was very passionate about education as was evident in him being in the top 10% of his police academy class. The Detective Rafael Ramos Foundation will continue to excel in Detective Ramos' legacy of faith, giving, community service, and leadership.
