On Monday, March 9 kindergarten and first grade students in NIDC’s afterschool programs were treated to new educational Disney themed story books and stuffed animals of their favorite characters to match. NIDC afterschool programs at P.S. 96, P.S. 357, and Eastchester Gardens Community Center received over 100 books and stuffed animals from the Disney classics Dumbo, 101 Dalmatians, Mickey Mouse, and The Lion King.
A representative from the Kohl’s Department Store in Orange, CT, Jessica Montano hand delivered the gifts to each program site. “Being born and raised in the Bronx, I felt these gifts would be best used in my hometown. NIDC is doing great work in the community. I’m glad to help out”.
NIDC and its afterschool programs thank Kohl’s for their support and look forward to working together again in the future.
