Aaron's Presents Comment October 15, 2014

Hello! I am incredibly excited to tell you that we have just completed our fist project of the 2014-15 academic year, and this project has been funded by The Dr. Alan Metwally Presents Fund. A third grade girl applied for a grant to provide Halloween costumes for homeless children, and she went above and beyond, creating individual cards and packages with costumes for 21 children who live in transitional housing for victims of domestic violence in Lawrence, MA. We delivered the packages tonight, and the staff was moved and thrilled to tears to be able to give them to excited children. They told us that last year, only 2 children were able to go to their Halloween party in costume.Please see more details and photos at this page by clicking on "Costume Collection."
Thank you for bringing so much joy! And there is much more to come.

How appropriate that the first project be of a theme to allow children to enjoy their Halloween and party in costume. Alan was a great host and loved to have a party and catering to everyone's needs was always primary for him. Congratulations to this little girl who follows him in receiving joy from the ability to provide for others. Happy Halloween
