Mt. Kisco, NY – (January 11, 2010) – Families served by Mount Kisco Child Care Center (MKCCC) recently benefited from the Junior League of Northern Westchester’s 28th Annual Holiday Share Drive, which addresses poverty, hunger and disparity during the holidays. The Junior League organizes community members to provide gift and food items to needy Northern Westchester families. MKCCC is a founding partner in the program, which supports 35 of the families whose children are in care there.
The project promotes voluntarism by facilitating a volunteer opportunity for the community, provides hands-on training opportunities for committee members in project development and coordination with our community partners, and improves the lives of those most in need in our community.
More than twenty athletes from the Yorktown Hockey team loaded, unloaded and delivered over 100 boxes of food, clothing and gifts to MKCCC. Whalen’s Moving provided the truck that delivered the boxes from another site.
“We can think of no better way to support our families than by partnering with other organizations in our area in a collective initiative to help our neighbors during the holiday season,” said Dottie Jordan, executive director of MKCCC. “We are so grateful to the Yorktown hockey team and to Whalen’s for donating their time to such an important cause.”
