We are extremely humbled to have been able to participate in this year’s Phoebe H. Stein Child Life Program for The Children’s Hospital at Montefiore. The Child Life Program collects toy donations, supplies and monetary funds in order to help make celebrations as special as possible for patients. This helps bring some joy and a bit of much-needed normalcy to the woeful situation of being in a hospital during the holiday season.
Our Cookie’s Kids Department Store on Melrose Avenue in the Bronx, New York, took the opportunity to give back to our community and help put smiles on the faces of children who are in need of some holiday cheer.
We are so appreciative of Paralegals for the Community, LLC, who collected and dropped off our donations for us to Montefiore during this busy holiday season. Paralegals for the Community is a completely women-owned small business in the Bronx, NY. Founders Rachel Batista, Elaine Castillo, and Swannie Batista eagerly reached out to us, and we are so grateful for everything they do for our community. Without them, this holiday would have been a little less bright for the children at Montefiore. Thank you so much, ladies, for bringing us this opportunity.

Happy Holidays from our Cookie’s Family to yours!
