     I LUG NY continued to raise funds to help bring smiles to children’s faces who are being cared for at local children’s hospitals.

Donation 2 of 2 Dropped off at Maria Fareri Children’s Hospital

Braving yesterday’s snow Mike B dropped off the first annual donation to Maria Fareri Children’s Hospital in Westchester County NY.

LUG NY decided this year to make donations to two local children’s hospitals in hopes of brightening up a few children’s holidays. Mike B’s son spend a week in Maria Fareri Children’s Hospital two years ago during the holidays, while there his son was given a small but incredibly meaningful holiday gift . ‘It meant a lot to our family, and being able to return the favor is very rewarding’. I LUG NY opted to donate to two hospitals this year in hopes to reach more children and hopefully put a smile on their faces.
