21 Jan The Junior League of Albany Partners with A Child’s Place at Unity House
Albany, New York—The Junior League of Albany (JLA) is excited to announce a new partnership with A Child’s Place at Unity House to begin in January 2020.
Unity House’s day care program was selected out of numerous responses to JLA’s most recent request for collaborative project proposals seeking a partner to execute a community project combating hunger and fighting poverty with a particular focus on assisting women and children in need.
This selected project will involve offering backpacks with needed child care items and resources for parents and children, with a particular focus on low-income parents, mothers, and infants. “JLA is looking forward to collaborating on this project and hopes to see the partnership grow into a larger collaboration supporting the broader missions of both organizations,” said Carol Crummey McCardle, JLA president.
“On behalf of the many children and families we serve, Unity House is very grateful to the Junior League of Albany for selecting A Child’s Place as the beneficiary of this effort to help combat hunger and right poverty in our community,” said Unity House CEO Chris Burke.
