Over two hundred Long Island children who are clients of EAC programs got to have a $100 shopping spree at Wal-Mart in Farmingdale on December 5th, thanks to the incredible generosity EAC Board Member, Thomas Gubitosi. This is the 13th year Tom Gubitosi has funded the shopping spree through the Marie & Micheal Gubitosi Foundation. The Foundation, established in honor of his late mother and brother, is dedicated to helping needy children. Each child was accompanied by a community volunteer and received $100 to spend on their choice of toys, clothes, and/or electronics. It was truly a memorable day, and made the holidays brighter for so many of EAC’s disadvantaged children.
The smiles on their faces really say it all!
