SCARSDALE, N.Y. -- The Junior League of Central Westchester (JLCW) hosted a pizza dinner and cupcake decorating on Friday, Dec. 12, to honor the Greenburgh Housing Authority’s After-School Program’s kids and volunteers and to present much needed supplies and support to this successful and growing program.
The Housing Authority runs an after-school program for approximately 30 children ages 5-17. The authority believes in a “holistic approach to promote educational achievement of the young people“ in the area. The after school program, which is headed strictly by volunteers, provides attendees with homework help, reading and school projects. The program also provides an after school snack, a play area which includes arts and crafts and organizes extra-curricular courses, day trips, pizza and movie nights and more.
The Junior League held a donations drive for approximately two months to collect much needed items to help the volunteers of the Housing Authority to create a more fulfilling and enriching learning environment for the children. The collected items include the following:
- Folding tables and chairs
- Filing cabinets
- Toys (indoor and outdoor)
- Art supplies
- School supplies
