We're very excited to announce that we'll be participating in #GivingTuesday this year! On Tuesday, December 2, 2014, charities, families, businesses, community centers, and students around the world will come together for one common purpose: to celebrate generosity and to give. Last year saw over 40 countries and 10,000 charities/non-profits participate, and we're looking forward to taking this opportunity to make a special impact in our community. Click here to see how you can give back to your community.
Our annual Chanukah Festival will take place on Sunday, December 14, from 1:00 PM to 3:00 PM at the Samuel Field Y. This year our theme is "Peas on Earth", as we'll celebrate healthy eating and a healthy lifestyle, which will be complemented by SUPER FUN healthy activities! The celebration will include Gym Games, Arts & Crafts, sing-a-longs, Lego fun with Bricks 4 Kidz, and special performances by our Early Childhood students, after school programs, and even some of our seniors. We will also be hosting a Summer Camp and Early Childhood Open House with Give-a-Ways. Gym participants MUST wear sneakers. Healthy food and drink options, and latkes will be available for purchase.
One of our campers - Sydney, 12 - took the time to write about why she's thankful for her favorite counselor, whom she considers a role model, for a school project. The result was a glowing testament to the powerful relationships between counselors and the campers they care for. Check out our latest SFY Blog post!
