A Knicks Thanksgiving at Children’s Aid!
Youth at The Children’s Aid Society’s Dunlevy Milbank Center enjoyed an event on Monday, November 22nd in celebration of Thanksgiving. Together with The Hain-Celestial Group, Inc., a leading natural and organic products company and the Garden of Dreams Foundation, New York Knickerbocker forward Wilson Chandler handed out organic turkeys and fresh vegetables to the center’s needy families.
Before families filed in to receive their all-natural Plainville Farms® turkey with the ready-to make trimmings, the youngsters enjoyed a special performance by the Knicks City Dancers. The center’s children also presented a special poster sized thank you card and plaque to Mr. Chandler. Irwin D. Simon, President and Chief Executive Officer of Hain-Celestial was also honored with a plaque for his generosity. "Giving thanks for all that we have, it's a honor to be able to partner with the Garden of Dreams in providing healthy holiday meals through the Children's Aid Society at the Dunlevy Milbank Center once again," said Irwin Simon.
The special holiday event also included dance music from a special guest DJ, pizza party and a game of hoops on the Knicks Groove Truck.
