The Department of Social Services and the Coordinated Agency for Spanish Americans (C.A.SA.) will once again partner with Kids Helping Kids by Kids Way Inc., to distribute new winter clothing to Nassau County families in need.
“Kids Way has done a terrific job of making a ‘world of difference’ on many levels in the lives of so many children and families throughout Nassau,” said County Executive Ed Mangano. “Nassau County is proud to partner with Kids Helping Kids by Way of Kids, Inc. to provide an opportunity for children most in need to stay warm during the cold months upon us.”
Their “Making a Warmth of Difference” Winter Apparel Program collects only new branded winter apparel from corporations to donate to children and families most in need. This year alone over 6000 units of winter apparel will be distributed. For many children who live in economically challenged areas they do not always receive new branded apparel; however, this program provides an opportunity to provide them something special that will keep them warm during the cold winter months.
Since 2004 Kids Helping Kids by Kids Way, Inc. has partnered with Nassau County agencies such as C.A.S.A. and the Department of Social Services, EAC Network, The Mary Brennan INN among others helping to distribute branded winter apparel to kids most in need throughout Long Island.
“Kids Helping Kids has collected and donated thousands of new winter jackets to the Nassau County Department of Social Services. They are an outstanding example to young children in showing them how to reach out and care about children less fortunate than themselves,” said Dr. John Imhof, commissioner of the Nassau County Department of Social Services.
Kids Helping Kids will host their Annual Holiday Benefit on Thursday, Dec. 8, at Oheka Castle with proceeds from the event benefiting this 501(c)3 organization.
