On Saturday, December 17th,  my organization, Y.U.N.G Harlem will partner with the Be Gr8 Foundation and COOL Kids to serve children at the Sonia Sotomayor Community Center in the South Bronx. During the holiday party 125 children ages 4-14 will enjoy a day of entertainment and fun that includes hot lunch, activities, games and a present of their choice from “Toyland.” To instill the Y.U.N.G Harlem spirit of giving,  the youth attending the holiday party will create cards for children at Harlem Hospital. 
We are looking for a team of extraordinary volunteers to help us bring  joy to over 100 children this holiday season. If you are interested in volunteering please complete the Volunteer Form by Wednesday December 13th.  Please share this information with your networks as well.
