Easter Seals New York hosts its annual Holiday Celebration at the Bronx Child Development Center
BRONX, N.Y., Dec. 18, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- On Wednesday, December 19, 2012, Easter Seals New York will host its annual Holiday Celebration at the Bronx Child Development Center (CDC) located at 2433 East Tremont Avenue, Bronx, NY. Thanks to the dedicated support of the New York State Fraternal Order of Police (NYSFOP), Bronx families and children in need will be able to celebrate the holidays with hundreds of new toys.
This year, Easter Seals New York, is incredibly grateful to the NYSFOP for their exceptionally generous donation of more than 300 toys for the annual Bronx CDC Holiday Celebration. The toys will benefit all of the Bronx CDC students as well as their siblings. Thanks to the NYSFOP's phenomenal support, holiday cheer and happiness will be spread to hundreds of children and families in the community.
In addition to providing toys for Easter Seals New York's Bronx CDC Holiday Celebration, the NYSFOP supports Easter Seals New York's monthly outreaches in Port Jervis, NY, by providing volunteers and thousands of turkeys and hams. These year-round, monthly outreaches provide food, clothing, toys and other essential items to more than 6,500 individuals from the Port Jervis community.
"Despite the challenges that many of our supporters have faced in the past year, the New York State Fraternal Order of Police never ceases to amaze us. The NYSFOP continues to go above and beyond to make sure that all individuals with disabilities or special needs have equal opportunities to live, learn, work and play in their communities," said John W. McGrath, Executive Director of Easter Seals New York. "For over ten years, the NYSFOP has been proud to support Easter Seals New York's programs and the families and individuals they serve. During these trying times, we hope that our contribution will help make the holidays a bit brighter for families in need," noted Executive Vice President of the New York State Fraternal Order of Police, Michael Essig.
