Lenox Hill Neighborhood House

IN THE COMMUNITY

Makeovers for Moms!

A

team from the designer alice + olivia visited the Neighborhood House

in December and did complete makeovers for five mothers of children

in our Early Childhood Center! The team did hair styling, makeup and

clothing for the moms and presented fantastic gifts for their children. We are

thrilled to have been chosen by Baby Buggy to participate in these wonderful

makeovers. Every year, Baby Buggy provides generous in-kind donations of

clothing and other necessities to the families in our Early Childhood Center.

The event was such a success and our moms came out looking simply fabulous!

One of the moms had just received her GED and was going on her first job

interview with the new clothes she received. The event was filmed by News

Channel 4 and is set to air soon. Check out more photos of this event on our

Facebook page.

Local Catholic High

Schools Give Back to

Their Community

T

hree local Catholic high schools—St. Jean

Baptiste, Regis and Xavier—have a rich

tradition of partnering with Lenox Hill

Neighborhood House as their students volunteer year

after year to help individuals and families in need and

learn the values of social justice. These preeminent

schools, with significant service learning requirements,

have educational missions that go beyond pure

academics. Their emphasis on community service and

service-learning allows students to apply what they

learn in the classroom to solve real-life problems while

deepening their commitment to their community and

making a difference to those less fortunate. These

volunteer assignments are often the students’ first

experience with significant responsibility and we are

excited to watch them grow in their roles.

During this academic year, we have hosted five student

volunteers, four of whom are assisting as Teacher’s

Aides in our Early Childhood Center classrooms and

one who is helping as an Activity Aide in our CARE

Social Adult Day Program for Seniors with Alzheimer’s

Disease and other cognitive difficulties. Our clients,

young and old, greatly enjoy the company and help of

our student volunteers.

Supervision is provided by each school’s service

program, by our Teachers and Program Directors and

by Anthony Snowden, Volunteer Director at Lenox Hill

Neighborhood House. We are so thankful for these

wonderful school partnerships that provide invaluable

support to our clients and foster a commitment to

social justice and helping those in need! If you would

like to learn how you can join our efforts as a volunteer,

please contact Anthony Snowden, Volunteer Director, at
