LNC Toy Drive 2016
This year we were invited to attend the 2016 LNC Toy Drive hosted in partnership with HISPA, The Puerto Rican Family Institute & Strategic Partners at Copacabana NYC on December 13.
With the support of all of those who attended over 1,600 toys were collected to be donated to the children of the Institute's programs. Thanks to Hess we also received a donation of 1000 Hess trucks for children as part of Hispanic Federation partnership.
NY Cares Winter Wishes Program
Thanks to the New York Cares Winter Wishes program we were able to bring a smile to over 400 children and teenagers this year. After writing letters to Santa, all of them were able to get exactly what they wanted for Christmas and their Winter Wishes all became true!
For the children of the Puerto Rican Family Institute, Inc. this Christmas of 2016 was made very special. Coming from families that are not able to provide them with gifts for Christmas, every single gift counted and brought a wonderful smile to those who were able to go home with a gift this year.
2016 Summer Camp at Ballard Farms
Each year with the funds raised during our annual Gala, we are able to sponsor ten girls from various programs at the Puerto Rican Family Institute to attend a summer camp at Ballard Farms.
Because of you, all our friends and sponsors, we are able to provide young girls with this wonderful opporunity to go away to camp for a week. Here they learn to ride horses, go swimming, and enjoy many other outdoor activities.
