HOLIDAY CHEER TO LOCAL FAMILIES

This season, Berkeley College associates purchased gifts for six families. The Bureau staff collected these gifts on December 14, 2017, to distribute to 11 children. Berkeley College associates also collected food to feed 13 families in White Plains, NY, for Thanksgiving. This is the seventh year the two organizations have partnered to serve those in need. 

“Berkeley College has provided overwhelming generosity year after year that helps local children and their families in White Plains have an enjoyable Thanksgiving and Christmas Holiday,” said Catherine Valenzuela, Youth Service Aide, White Plains Youth Bureau.
