GREENBURGH, N.Y. -- The Westchester Community Foundation recently donated books to the Greenburgh Health Center this holiday season. Since 2014, the Westchester Community Foundation has provided funding support to the Greenburgh Health Center’s maternal-infant health care program.

The Foundation knew the waiting room at the health center was lacking books and connected donor Ann Spindel, a former children’s librarian who is passionate about early childhood literacy, with the Greenburgh Health Center.

Together, with an additional donation from her husband, Paul, and friends Ira and Susan Deutsch, she selected 500 titles (Spanish and English) and used her donor-advised fund to purchase new books for hundreds of local children who attended the annual Christmas Fair at the Greenburgh Health Center on Dec. 18.

In addition to providing new books,  Spindel collected gently used books to re-stock the health center’s waiting rooms. Families were also able to pick out winter coats, the children met Santa Claus and were given gifts collected by teens from Alexander Hamilton High School.

“The day was so special,” Spindel said in a statement. “We were so thrilled.”
