WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. – In the spirit of the holidays, Pass It On Kids Kloset thanked George Constantin on Tuesday for donating a vacant suite at 4 Gannet Drive in White Plains after a fire destroyed its downtown location.

Stephanie Roth, director of Kid's Kloset, presented Constantin with a Corporate Hero award for allowing the volunteer organization to continue distributing new and gently used clothes and essentials to Westchester kids in need.

The air conditioners at the volunteer organization’s location at 170 E. Post Road overheated Sept. 4, causing a fire that destroyed about half of its inventory and made the building uninhabitable, Roth said.

“Walking through it, it was like losing a child because it was something we had worked on for a year,” she said. “The feeling was devastation.”

Constantin, CEO and president of Heritage Realty Group of Companies, owns the office space at 4 Gannett Drive. After the fire, the Westchester County Association reached out for someone to help out with a temporary space.

“It’s just something good to do,” Constantin said.

On Tuesday, Roth and Kid’s Kloset also presented Constantin with a proclamation from Congresswoman Nita Lowey for his deed.

Kid's Kloset is a program of Westchester Jewish Community Services.
