On Sunday, May 21st I’ll be walking with Shmuel to raise awareness and funds for an organization and a community that has a special place in my heart.
Shmuel joined Friendship Circle last year and has participated in many of their activities. It has been a real success for him in expanding his social network and has helped him thrive in an atmosphere where he is truly accepted.
Friendship Circle Upper East Side works every day to cultivate friendships between kids, teens and young adults with special needs and dedicated teen and young adult volunteers, providing social and recreational opportunities that are otherwise unavailable to individuals with special needs. Hundreds of friendships have been formed and so many lives have been changed for the better because of this beautiful organization.
Now more than ever, I’m inspired to continue supporting this special community. They don't charge for their services so this is their main fundraiser. Anything you can give to support our walk will be so appreciated and go such a long way. Thank you so much!
