Dear Maryel Families and Friends,

Now, that the holidays are approaching us, we would like to promote compassion and empathy in our children by helping the less fortunate. Starting on Tuesday, December 3rd and running until Thursday, December 19, Maryel will be collecting hats, gloves, scarves, socks, robes, and slippers in new condition for children ages 0-13 years old. We will be collecting these items for Childrens Community Services, Inc (CCS), a non-profit organization dedicated to improving the lives of families within our communities. Their work is driven by a core group of highly motivated individuals, determined to better society. CCS helps displaced families overcome homelessness in New York City, and provides short-term emergency shelter and services for these families and their children. Through housing, social services, and aftercare programming, they restore and enhance family structures.
