I know there it seems like there are so many charities asking for donations, in addition to the recent tragic storm Sandy and need in our area, but since the inception of the Adoptive Parents Committee (APC) our Children's Relief and Waiting Children's Committees work on improving the quality of life for children in residential foster care and orphanages around the globe year round. During the holiday season, we focus on children right here on Long Island in foster care who are still waiting for their forever family by creating a wish tree to collect funds to buy them holiday gifts. Please help us with our mission, we are collecting donations in the amount of $5. $10. or $20. dollars and working with DSS to identify children in need. Please send your donation to our chapter treasurer Tiiu Tambakis, 9 Cori Lane, East Northport, NY 11731 and spread the word with your FB friends!
