After spending nearly ten years playing a cop on TV, Donnie Wahlberg firmly believes in the importance of emergency services and their impact on the community. The “Blue Bloods” star teamed up with police and firefighters at Target’s Edgewater, NJ location to join with the Heroes & Helpers program.

The Heroes & Helpers program helps local safety partner up with underserved youths to help them show for the holiday season. For Wahlberg, this event is especially close to his heart. We sat down to talk about his childhood, his life-long love for the Celtics, holiday traditions, and “Blue Bloods” in this exclusive interview.
