For several years, Northeast Guidance Center has distributed warm, colorful coats to bring warmth to a needy child and their siblings, who often have to share a coat to attend school. This means that a child may attend school every other day or less. NEGC’s signature fundraiser Kruise4Kids scheduled for Thursday, August 10, will raise funds to purchase 1,000 warm, colorful coats for the children who receive services at the Eli Z. Rubin Children’s Wellness Center, and their siblings. Our onboard guests will be able to make donations to purchase coats, hats and gloves to complete the winter weather package!
Last year, volunteers distributed over 800 coats to our children.
If you aren’t able to donate a coat, a $20 donation will buy a new winter coat. Donate now! Help keep children healthy and in school!
