OLD BRIDGE – Members of the Old Bridge Policemen’s Benevolent Association (PBA) Local 127 are continuing to bring smiles to the community – lights, sirens and all in the wake of the novel coronavirus pandemic.

“If people reach out and we can go out, we will,” said PBA President Vincent Galgano, saying drive-by birthday parades are a new phenomenon during this time. “If we can keep the kids happy and hopes up, we are grateful.”

Members of the PBA have participated in two drive-by birthday parades for two children in the same neighborhood, and on April 17, the PBA members were honored to take part in a welcome home parade for Kendall Bresocnik.

The Bresocnik family recently received some heartbreaking news. Kendall, described by her family as a “happy, silly, first grader and 7-year-old princess,” was diagnosed with multiple inoperable, grade 3 glioma brain tumors.

The PBA, in a social media post, recognized staff at the Old Bridge Police Department, New York Police Department, Port Authority Police Department, Marlboro Police Department, Matawan Police Department, New Jersey State Police, Robertsville Fire Department, Green and White First Aid Squad, Red and White First Aid Squad, and Old Bridge Township Emergency Medical Services (OBTEMS) as well as Bikers Against Child Abuse, and all of the friends and family who came out to support the young girl and her family.

“We all wanted to make Kendall feel extra special when she got home,” Galgano said of the 45-minute event. “We know that Kendall is a strong little girl and we will be here to support her any way we can.”

A GoFundMe page for Kendall and her family has been set up to help minimize financial uncertainty following Kendall’s diagnosis. To make a donation, visit https://bit.ly/2XVB9Db
