Sometimes helping someone else is a great way to help yourself, too.
That’s what kids discovered at our Valentine’s Day workshop in Gerritsen Beach earlier this month. Gerritsen Beach was hit hard by Superstorm Sandy in 2012, and many children there are still feeling the effects of damaged housing, financial loss and parental stress.
At the workshop, they made heart-shaped ornaments to send to people who experienced Hurricane Katrina in Louisiana. Children’s Health Fund has been helping members of the two storm-tossed communities exchange messages.
