AUXILIARY INITIATIVES 2020

Toy Drive/Children’s Holiday Party

The contactless Toy Drive, for our Children’s Holiday Toy “Grab and Go” Event was a success! We provided 300 children, ages 0-12 in the local Far Rockaway area with brand-new toys.

Thank you to all of our donors who gave to this initiative by sending in toys and cookies from our Amazon Charity and Target registries.

Below are some photos from the Children's Holiday Toy "Grab and Go."

Adopt-a-Family

Thank you to all of our donors who participated in the Adopt-a-Family program.

We are so grateful for your ongoing support in making this important program a success. Together, we made the holiday season a blessed and joyous occasion for 49 individuals and families in need. Below are some photos from the Adopt-a-Family program.

Back to School Drive

This year was our 4th annual Community & Back-to-School Wellness Event. We re-imagined this year into a safe “Grab and Go” event, and offered pediatric wellness appointments. We had a fantastic turnout, distributing 500 bags of school supplies and PPE to children in the community.

Here are some photos from the event, our sponsors who contributed to the school supply fund and a story published by The Wave.
