You gotta have heart!
Cheers and kudos to the Pythian Sisters of New York for donating $3,000 to the HeartShare School in Bensonhurst for children with autism.
Cindy Nathanson, the 2015 Grand Chief of the New York Pythian Sisters, works at local company Bruce Supply and knows thoroughly about HeartShare through company president Bruce Wexler. She chose HeartShare as her charity during her year-long leadership role for the non-denominational women’s civic organization.
“It’s my pleasure to bring awareness to this important program,” she said.
Cindy’s proud parents, Abe and Florence Goldberg, also Pythian members, were present as their daughter handed over the gelt last December. Receiving the check was HeartShare school Director Sharon Toledo and HeartShare president of Education and Services Carol Verdi.
“HeartShare’s autism services, including The HeartShare School, have become a very strong resource for parents who often have nowhere else to turn,” noted HeartShare Developmental Disabilities Services Executive Director Linda Tempel. “Finding out that your child may have a developmental delay initially often is a very daunting and overwhelming experience.”
Standing O is giving a great big shout-out to the Pythian Sisters for all their charitable endeavors.
