WCJS Honors: Constantin as Corporate Hero
-November 26, 2012
White Plains Patch:
Westchester Jewish Community Services (WJCS) used the occasion of Thanksgiving to officially thank George Constantin, CEO of Heritage Realty Services, for rescuing one of its programs—Kid's Kloset—after a fire destroyed the program's inventory and location.
On November 20, WJCS presented Mr. Constantin with its Corporate Hero Award for providing a temporary space for Kid's Kloset to continue to operate. As a result, Kid's Kloset has been able to further its mission of providing gently-used children's clothes and essentials to local families in need.
"Mr. Constantin's generosity of spirit has been a tremendous blessing," said Stephanie Roth, Kid's Kloset Director. "WJCS is more than grateful that he recognized the void Kid's Kloset fills in the community and provided us with a way to continue our mission."
"The success of Kid's Kloset is totally reliant on the generosity of others—people who donate children's clothes, people who contribute time to sort and redistribute those items and people like Mr. Constantin who provide us with the all-important base of operation. He is truly Kid's Kloset's hero."
A volunteer driven program of Westchester Jewish Community Services (WJCS), Kid's Kloset has provided "bags of love"—a week's worth of clothing—to more than 2,000 local children in need since September 2011.
