This holiday season, The Execu|Search Group’s Women’s Network partnered with Elizabeth Seton Pediatric Center to help provide toys for children in need. The Women’s Network aims not only to ensure that women at all levels of The Execu|Search Group are meeting, supporting and helping one another to move forward in their careers, but to also function as a unified collective that supports related nonprofit organizations together. Elizabeth Seton Pediatric Center, a Yonkers-based facility founded to provide specialized medical and rehabilitative services to medically fragile children with complex clinical conditions and disabilities, was an easy pick for this month’s initiative.
Participating members of the Women’s Network were each assigned one of Elizabeth Seton’s over 130 children who reside at the Center, with a corresponding wish list of suggested gifts. Some examples of desired gifts included clothing, gift items like DVDs, bedding, hair accessories, and gift cards.
Gifts were collected and shipped to the Center on December 18th, and all of the Center’s children received gifts. “The Women’s Network of The Execu|Search Group was happy to give back this year to the children of the Elizabeth Seton Pediatric Center and to provide gifts to the medically fragile children who reside there,” says Katie Niekrash, one of the Women’s Network’s founders and the organizer of this event. “Elizabeth Seton is both a client of Execu|Search and an organization that we greatly admire. What they are able to do for the children they serve and their families is truly remarkable. We are happy to do our part to make sure all the kids have an enjoyable holiday season!”
