Every year, Echo Glen Children’s Center rings in the New Year with a movie night for youth and staff. This year, Harbor Wholesale donated “movie baskets” filled with fun snacks for the celebration.
Harbor Wholesale is a locally owned and operated food distributor committed to diversity, equity, and inclusion. Recognizing that youth of color are disproportionally impacted by the school-to-prison pipeline and wanting to show some support for DCYF’s young people, they selected Echo Glen to be part of their holiday giving.
Harbor Wholesale’s Lisa Smith and DCYF’s Youth Development Program Administrator Tom Pennella loaded up and delivered a van filled with the donated goodies. The movie baskets included an array of treats like Kit Kats, sodas, jerky, and more.
“We were excited to provide this donation to the young people at Echo Glen as a way to send a message of hope and to let them know there are folks out in the world rooting for them and their success,” said Lisa.
The treats were shared among youth and staff. This was a sweet way to let the youth in DCYF’s care know that they are seen, valued, and supported by the community.
Thank you, Harbor Wholesale!
