“It is up to us to live up to the legacy that was left for us, and to leave a legacy
that is worthy of our children and of future generations”- Christine Gregoire
Every donation to Nyack Center helps ensure that legacy. Please donate to The Nyack Center’s critical programs and services for children and families. 98% of our families are at or below the Federal Income Guidelines for Poverty. Nyack Center is able to offer the lowest cost before and after school care in Rockland and The Hudson Valley. Parents say Nyack Center’s services are the only way they can afford to live and work in our community. We need your help to continue to support Nyack Center children and families.
One of our children, Alicia began at 6 years old as a camper at Camp Nyack. That summer she arrived enthusiastic to swim and be with her friends. In just 2 days, her affect changed to sad and withdrawn. With a little conversation with our staff, we learned she didn’t have a swimsuit or towel. After a quick trip by a staff member to a local store, Alicia was ready to learn to swim with the best of them. Small hurdles to us but, a world of opportunity for our children.
Your gift will help ensure our children will conquer those small, and sometimes big hurdles, and have opportunities for: 44 of our children to have breakfast and a safe place before school, 87 children to get homework help, snack and enriching activities after school, 25 teens to have Computer Time, 15 teens to participate in Teen Council and host Teen Nights for 100 plus youth, 125 children to attend summer day camp, 35 youth to have a safe place to go during the summer, 80 plus local nonprofits to have a place to host workshops and events and so much more.
This is what Nyack Center is all about – making a difference for our friends and neighbors, so all our community children have what they need to succeed. We know that when one child succeeds, we all succeed. We are leaving a legacy together as a community every day.
Generous community donors are matching every dollar you donate up to $12,000.
Let’s take their lead, give generously, join our community of friends and leave our legacy together in the life of children and families.
Our heartfelt wishes for a happy & healthy season of love.
