Letter: A Thank You From PW Children’s Center

The Port Washington Children’s Center would like to extend its appreciation to our friends at the Berest Dance Center, the “Making Spirits Bright” dancers, and especially the families of the dancers, for selecting our organization as recipient of its 2011 Holiday Toy Drive. Traditionally, guests attending Berest’s annual performance are asked to donate new unwrapped toys which are then distributed to a nonprofit organization that provides programs or services to children. PWCC was so happy to be selected by Olga Berest this past holiday season and was thrilled to receive six large bags filled with a variety of educational and fun toys meant for children of all ages. The Port Washington Children’s Center was established in 1977 as a non-profit, non-sectarian childcare center, licensed by New York State Office of Children and Family Services, to provide high quality child care for families that reside or work in the community of Port Washington.

Those children currently attending our toddler, 3-4 years, and K-6 programs will enjoy playing with these new toys in the upcoming year, and this generosity will also be enjoyed in the years to come as new children enter our doors. We are so fortunate to be a part of this community and to be recognized not only by Berest but also by the many generous families who have made donations this past year.

Thank you again and a Happy and Healthy New Year to all!

co-presidents; Donna Preminger,
