Kids’ Club was so happy to be able to celebrate the holidays in person with AFHT families this year by attending their in class celebrations and by donating C-Town supermarket gift certificates, additional desserts, and books from our supporters. Many of the books were collected at book drives held at The Church of the Magdalene in Pocantico Hills and Transom Book Shop in Tarrytown.
The AFHT is an early literacy program run by the Tarrytown School District. It currently serves 45 local families and meets three times a week at John Paulding School. Last week’s celebrations included sing-a-longs, piñatas, special acknowledgments and more. It was a joyful evening and a festive way to acknowledge the dedication of the families in improving their literacy skills and their commitment to education.
