I have been volunteering with Anthony of Padua Gifts for Children Inc since I was in highschool. Starting out as a family run non-profit, this organization has grown to helping children from the inner city to helping children from both NY and NJ that are in need.
Their motto is that is we are to enjoy the fruits of our labor in the future, we must begin by creating a legacy of support and hope for the children of today... our leaders of tomorrow.
I have seen first hand, through smiles, and hugs, that we have made a big difference in the lives of the children that we bring to the farm for a week. Not only do we help them with their math and english, but we help boost their self esteems and their confidence! It is an extremely humbling expereince, and I am truly blessed to have been able to be a part of such a great organization!
No matter how big or small, remember that every little bit helps!
