ANDRUS Asks Community to Give Back This Holiday Season

Launches ‘Cards for Children’ Appeal for End of Year Giving

YONKERS, N.Y. (November 28, 2018) – ANDRUS, a local nonprofit that provides strong, professional and nurturing care for more than 4,500 children and families each year, is seeking community support this holiday season. Many of the families ANDRUS works with struggle financially. With help, the organization can make sure they have a festive season, filled with special gifts and memory-making experiences.

As part of an end-of-year appeal, ANDRUS, today, launched its ‘Card for Children’ appeal. “This year, consider adding someone new to your holiday card list; a child in need,” said Fiona Wilkes, Director of Development, ANDRUS. “By sending a card, you can help send a little love their way.”
