At holiday time, many of our residents are involved with donation drives and work overtime to bring a special season to those most in need.
The idea to consolidate Chappaqua collections was the idea of residents Dawn Greenberg and Jessica Reinmann. Houlihan Lawrence came on board as a central collection point. At press time, collections of goods and funds are on tap for April’s Child (formerly Child Abuse Prevention Center), Making Headway, Make-a-Wish of Hudson Valley, The Cottage School, the Ossining Children’s Center, The Guidance Center and the Food Bank of Westchester.
Soon delivering: Truckloads of new housewares to April’s Child, college prep books to The Guidance Center (operating in high need high schools in lower Westchester) and gift cards to help patient families working with Making Headway. States Greenberg: “Giving is always the right thing to do, whatever the season.”
