Herricks Youth Against Cancer ran a school wide toy drive to benefit the Cancer Center for Kids at NYU Winthrop University Hospital.
The hospital sent Herricks a wish list and with generous donations from faculty, students and staff members, Youth Against Cancer collected at least one gift from each of the items on the list.
Kim Krupa, the Child Life Specialist at the Cancer Center, coordinated the project with the Youth Against Cancer Board and Advisor Dan Doherty. The board consists of Sanjana Ahmed, Odellia Kidanian. Melissa Lau, Maggie Lau, Anjana Menghrajani, Mariana Mohsen, Brittany Thomas and Talya Youdim. The Cancer Center for Kids works with children and their families that are diagnosed with any form of cancer.
