THE BRONX - A local NYPD precinct teamed up with Santa for a holiday drive to benefit local kids.

The 47th Precinct hosted 5,000 kids for a huge toy drive where no child was left without a present for the holidays.

The precinct transformed into a gingerbread house as the kids came inside to see Santa and receive their presents.

This was the third annual holiday giveaway, and the precinct says it will continue to do it every year to help those in need, as many families are struggling.
