Our policy work, grounded in our direct services, amplifies the voice of our communities on the local, state, and national policy levels around issues of child welfare, early care, education, juvenile justice, and the well-being of Latino children.

After-School Program’s 2013 Pajama Read  with WXTV Univision 41

On December 12, 2013, CHCF and WXTV Univision 41 hosted the 2013 Pajama Read event for the children in CHCF’s  After-School program at P.S. 279 in the Bronx.  

The Pajama Reach is part of CHCF’s After-School program, which provides academic support and other interventions to foster children’s well-being and academic success.  The Pajama Read event is dedicated to first graders in the program.  These small children receive pajamas and slippers donated by Univision 41 New York employees and volunteers in response to the needs of many of the children, such as lack of resources and living in shelters or transitional housing.   

The event  was a complete success. Jorge Viera, News Anchor, WXTV Univision 41, read a Holiday story to the children, capturing their full attention.  Univision 41 New York staff and volunteers celebrated with the children, bringing untold happiness and holiday cheers. The children were very excited to receive the pajamas and will remember the day for a long time.  

CHCF extends heartfelt thanks to WXTV Univision 41 as a long-term partner and supporter, to Aida E. Rosario, Director of Communications,  WXTV Univision 41  for her continued support, to Jorge Viera for his participation, and to the volunteers of Univision’s Women’s Leadership Council for their collaboration this year.

A Special Thanksgiving Dinner:

Children turned their school cafeteria into a soup kitchen to assist those in need Students and staff from The Committee for Hispanic Children and Families, Inc. (CHCF) After-School Program at PS/MS 279 turned their school’s cafeteria into a Soup Kitchen on November 20, 2013, to provide a Thanksgiving dinner to community members in need. This event began in 2005 as a community service project for middle school students in the program.

The event provided a special meal for elderly and homeless people in the area around PS/MS 279. As in previous years, the event bridged a gap between different generations in the community. Fifth to eighth grade CHCF After-School students participated in the planning and development of the project, wrote letters, posted flyers, designed the menu and collected food donations. Students in CHCF’s Teen Pregnancy Prevention and Drop-Out Prevention Programs at Grace Dodge Career & Technical High School in the Bronx also helped CHCF staff organize the event.

A total of 350 people attended, including school administrators, teachers, students and their families, community volunteers, CHCF staff and guests from a range of community spaces, including the Morris Heights Center for Senior Citizens, the Bronx County Homeless Shelter and the Morris Shelter. In addition to dinner, the event included a DJ and dancing. CHCF extends special thanks to PS/MS 279 Principal Jean Dalton for supporting the event.

New York City Councilmember Fernando Cabrera was a special guest at the Soup Kitchen. The Councilman congratulated students, staff and parents who participated in the event and encouraged students to stay in school and connected with their community, and encouraged families to contribute to their children’s education.
