Ft Lauderdale, FL – FLORIDA DONATION FROM THE SPIRIT OF GIVING NETWORK
The Florida office looked more like Santa’s workshop after receiving a very generous donation from a local nonprofit organization called the Spirit of Giving Network, an organization that works with local nonprofit groups to fulfill Christmas wish lists by partnering with corporations in their community. Licensing Coordinator Catherine Amendola planned the event and gathered wish lists from every child in the foster care program. On Tuesday, December 17th Catherine and Program Director Katherine Warner (pictured at left with the gifts) traveled to Lynn University to pick up the donations and were interviewed by the Sun Sentinel newspaper for an upcoming story about the experience and were able to educate the reporter about NYAP’s expansion into Palm Beach County and the need for quality foster parents. The gifts were then delivered to each of NYAP’s foster homes throughout the county by all of the NYAP staff.
It was a truly humbling experience
, said Katherine Warner about the outpouring of support from the community. It was a very merry Christmas for our foster youth in Florida!
