Estación de Donación
El objeto de este proyecto es para ayudar las familias con necesidades específicas - de una forma anónima.

La forma en que funciona es así: cuando el centro de recursos de la familia oye acerca de un niño o una familia que necesitan de algo, se envía un mensaje de correo electrónico a todos los padres que han ofrecido estar en la lista. Quien tiene el elemento necesario, golpea "responder a todos" y así todos saben que estar solucionado.

No dude en ponerse en contacto con el centro si usted necesita donaciones o  si le gustaría estar en la lista por favor, enviarme un correo electrónico a

 Rachel Berlin - Coordinadora Telefono - (845) 353-7268
