On Saturday, May 14, 2016, twenty-five children participated in our annual Spring Fling event, held at the Target store at the Broadway Mall in Hicksville, NY. These underprivileged children, from Deasy School in Glen Cove, NY, arrived at the store early in the morning and were served doughnuts, fruit and milk donated by Target.
The children were accompanied by volunteers and given the opportunity to choose up to $60 worth of clothing. If there were any monies left after the purchases, the change was given to the children. After the shopping spree the children and volunteers gathered again for refreshments and crafts.
This successful event was made possible by funds raised by the Make A Smile Foundation, Inc. from a variety of sponsors. These generous donations provided the children and volunteers with a wonderful experience that they will always cherish.
