Our heartfelt appreciation goes out to the 6th-grade students of St. Athanasius Catholic Academy and their thoughtful teacher, Ms. Gabb. They conducted a service project, collecting supplies for our shelter facility. We feel truly blessed to have such kind-hearted individuals who selflessly think of us. Furthermore, we are immensely proud of the next generation, growing up to be not only generous but also incredibly compassionate. A big thank you to everyone involved in this wonderful project.

We extend a heartfelt appreciation to PS 48, an elementary school in Borough Park/Bensonhurst, and the remarkable young women in the 4th and 5th grade who united to raise crucial funds for our organizations. Through bake sales held at their school, they collectively raised an impressive $910! Overjoyed and proud, we invited them to our facility to meet the AMA residents and presented them with goody bags. These inspiring individuals are destined to make a positive impact on the world, and we have no doubt about it.
