PEF Black Caucus of Albany and PEF Caribbean American Committee brighten lives of kids at family shelter
The Albany Chapter of the PEF Black Caucus and the PEF Caribbean American Committee, provided Easter baskets and FirstBook books (donated by AFT) to children in the Marillac Family Shelter, in Albany, on Saturday April 20. We read four books to the kids, and gave them Easter baskets. The kids and the mothers were very appreciative of our “collaborative efforts. We just want to thank AFT for contributing FirstBook books to the Chapter. It was amazing to have an interactive book reading with the kids. In addition to the reading books, we also gave the kids the “Union” coloring books! Each child was able to select a book of their choice, with some guidance from the PEF members.
