The Boys & Girls Club of Paterson and Passaic received $2,500 in donation from Cablevision’s Optimum Community to purchase presents for young members of the club.
In the spirit of Christmas the club distributed the presents to children during its annual holiday dinner.
Holiday Toy Program initiative run under the Optimum Community allows the cable company to give back to the communities it serves by providing gifts for children in need through local non-profit organization.
The club identifies children in need and presents them with a gift.
“For more than four decades, Optimum and Cablevision have been part of the fabric of your community, connecting, engaging and empowering people where we live and work,” states the initiative’s website.
