In collaboration with local community leaders and elected officials across NYC, HITN happily serviced over 2500 children with back-to-school supplies in an effort to prepare them for success.
HITN President and CEO Mike Nieves said, “We welcome this opportunity to support our local community on the ground level by working with elected representatives and community groups in order to help families that are in need obtain the school supplies their children require for their next year of learning.”
“Many families continue to face financial hardship, and purchasing simply school supplies can be a struggle,” said Assemblywoman Davila.
“It is these sorts of meaningful collaborations that help uplift families in need.” “Thank you HITN for your unwavering commitment to the success of our children,” said Anita Haines, Founder and CEO at Ujima Community Working Together, Inc.
A warm thank you to our partners Ujima Community Working Together, Inc., NY State Senator Luis Sepúlveda, NY State Assembly members Maritza Davila, Erik Dilan, Karines Reyes, Kenny Burgos, Jessica González-Rojas, and NYC Council member Shekar Krishnan.
