East Side House thanks all those who made the holidays bright for our children and families.Thanks to our friends at Fresh Direct, Federation for Protestant Welfare Agencies (FPWA), United Neighborhood Houses (UNH), and friend Kells Barnett, over 100 students received gifts for the holidays. As high lighted by Dianda Shears, the Program Director of after school services at Millbrook Community Centrer, we wanted to “make sure that our children went home with toys. We know that some parents and families can’t afford gifts, so we wanted to make sure they had the best holidays possible,” explains Diandra Shears, Director of After-School Programs at Millbrook Community Center.
We are so floored by the generosity shown by our community and funding partners. Thank you!
