WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. -- A charitable group from White Plains has given thousands of dollars to an organization that helps children in need.
Alan Waxenberg and Natalie Robinson, co-chairs of the Metropolis County Club Foundation, recently presented Westchester Jewish Community Services (WJCS) with a $10,000 donation.
The WJCS runs Kids’ Kloset, a program that supplies disadvantaged children with gently used clothing, warm coats, shoes and other essentials.
The WJCS said that more than 8,900 children have received bags of clothing from Kids’ Kloset since 2011.
Packages contain a week’s worth of clothing and every item is carefully selected to match the size and specifications of each recipient.
WJCS is one of the largest non-profit, non-sectarian human services agencies in Westchester
It serves 20,000 people each year at dozens of clinic-, school-, community- and home-based locations throughout the county.
The agency says its integrated network of services includes mental health treatment and counseling, child and youth development programs, residential and non-residential programs for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities, home health and geriatric services.
