WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. -- A toy drive by Berkeley College collected 137 gifts for children served by Lifting Up Westchester. The toys were recently donated to the White Plains organization.
“Without their help, only a fraction of our kids would have a toy to open,” said Nina Inzinna, Volunteer and Community Outreach Manager at Lifting Up Westchester. "The Enrollment Services Department at Berkeley College in White Plains is making a difference for the children served by Lifting Up Westchester."
More than 200 children participate in Lifting Up Westchester’s Brighter Futures Mentoring, Rainbow, and Housing programs. The mission of Lifting Up Westchester (formerly Grace Community Center) is to assist Westchester County’s neediest and most at-risk residents, especially those who are under-served by other resources.
