Winter seemed to arrive in a hurry this year – maybe it was the unseasonable warm fall weather we had, or maybe it was the hustle and bustle of the holiday season that just seemed to mask the inevitable temperature drop… But the bitter chill of winter arrived in full force last week, and we soon realized we had some catching up to do. We found out last Friday that there were kids in our New York City schools that didn’t have winter coats – we knew we had to act, and act fast. So we sent out an appeal, to you, our supporters, hoping for a warm reception…
Three days later, your outpouring of support has been truly AMAZING!l!
Within hours, scores of donations had come in and with that support over the weekend we purchased winter coats of all sizes for distribution beginning Monday. Even the Team at Burlington Coat Factory in Middleton, NY got involved and offered a special discount as we quickly mobilized resources to keep these kids warm!
Thanks to your support, together we were able to QUICKLY get warm winter coats to kids who needed them most.
Those kids, their parents, and all of us at Children’s Health Fund, are grateful for your being there, yet again, to say to those children and families, “…don’t worry, we’ve got you covered!”
If you or someone you know would still like to contribute, you can do so here.
