To spread some cheer this holiday season, the Women’s Network held a gift drive for FREE, a Long Island-based organization that serves patients with developmental disabilities.
After fulfilling their wish list for 70 of their residents, we held a gift wrapping event in our New York City office. The following Friday, a few members of the Women’s Network personally delivered the presents to FREE, and the event was featured on News 12 Long Island.
“Being able to meet some of the residents and watch them open their presents was an incredible experience,” says Melanie Marshak, a member of The Women’s Network committee who helped organize the gift drive. “Everyone was thrilled to have received what they had asked for and loved reading the personal notes in their cards.”
