Over the course of three months ending in December 2020, Astor Services for Children & Families, which provides behavioral and educational services for thousands of children and their families throughout the Bronx and Mid-Hudson Valley, provided gift cards to families and children in need through its annual Adopt-A-Family program.
With generous donations of more than $120,000 from 430 individuals, corporations and groups across the Hudson Valley region and the Bronx, 2,300 children served by Astor received gifts during the 2020 holiday season. These generous donations allowed families to purchase every day needs, such as groceries, winter coats, hats and gloves, along with traditional holiday presents.
“Through the immense support of our Adopt-A-Family donors, especially during this stressful time of CoViD which has disproportionately impacted our families, we were able to serve the neediest children and their families in Astor’s programs,” said Sonia Barnes-Moorhead, executive vice president of The Children’s Foundation of Astor. “The tremendous contributions from our community’s individuals, families and organizations are greatly appreciated.”
