The Phi Beta Kappa Association of New York Holiday Toy Drive Collects Donated Gifts for Children and Teens Affected by Cancer
CancerCare was honored to be the recipient of The Phi Beta Kappa (PBK) Association of New York’s 2015 Holiday Party & Toy Drive. The PBK members and their guests were very generous in donating funds and gifts for children and teens affected by cancer. The event was a tremendous success, with each attending member of this national academic honor society bringing with them gifts to be distributed this holiday season.
“CancerCare is very grateful for the generosity of the members of The PBK Association of New York," said Dr. Carolyn Messner, DSW, OSW-C, LCSW-R, FAPOS, CancerCare Director of Education and Training, who also is a lifetime member of PBK and the current Vice President of The Phi Beta Kappa Association of New York. "They donated many gifts and funds to children and teens impacted by cancer so that they would have the joy of opening a gift at this time of year. Without The PBK Association of New York in collaboration with CancerCare, these children and teens would not have this joy as their families did not have the money for Holiday gifts. Each of these gifts was so thoughtfully selected by the PBK members to brighten the lives of these children and teens and their families.”
