6 York Street Project Children Involved in a Car Accident

The Kids Need a New Van!!


On Monday, August 8, 2016, 6 children enrolled in York Street Project’s summer program were the victims in a major traffic accident involving 9 cars on Route 1&9 near Communipaw Avenue. Luckily, serious injuries were avoided. However, the transportation van used for summer and school-year activities was totaled. The children are sons and daughters of homeless and low-income men and women who participate in the early child development center program at York Street Project called The Nurturing Place. Besides being used for field trips, the van was also used for other York Street Project programs that serve the homeless and low-income families of Jersey City. Without proper transportation, the daily routine to pick-up food, donations, and other important tasks will be interrupted. The Maintenance Supervisor for York Street Project, Miguel Aponte, was relieved to know the children were safe, but crestfallen to hear the news of the van. “That was my Santa sleigh,” he said in reference to the amount of donations he picks up during the winter holiday season.

Please consider helping the children and families of York Street Project continue to enjoy their school year field trips and holiday donations by supporting our http://www.male-viagra.com campaign to raise money for a new student van.
