“Good Night Lights” for Golisano Children’s Hospital patients is back
ROCHESTER, N.Y. — Good Night Lights is back for the kids at Golisano Children’s Hospital. The first one of the holiday season was held on Wednesday.
Every Wednesday night up until December 21, police and fire departments will line up their cars and trucks outside of the hospital and flash their lights to say a “good night” to young patients. Organizers told us it means as much to them as it does to the kids.
“The stuff we go through every day, obviously people think cops do a lot of things that people don’t want to see, but this is one of the great things we get to do every year,” said Rochester Police Lt. Richard Waldo. “So it makes everybody happy to be here. …We’ve had parents in tears because we’re out here, it means a lot to them.”
This year is the fifth since the RPD Community Affairs Bureau started lighting up the nights for patients at the hospital.
