Easter recipient Rosaleigh
After a long winter, Spring has finally arrived! It is time to renew and rejuvenate as our thoughts turn to longer days, warm sunshine and beautiful blooming flowers. This past year, the Italian Welfare League reached a significant milestone. With your generosity and support, the League has donated over $1,000,000 to "I Nostri Bambini". Since initiating our campaign, we have helped over 700 children, including individual recipients and by providing grants to organizations such as ACLD-Kramer Learning, Angela's House, Association for Children with Down Syndrome, Child Skin Disease Foundation, Cooley's Anemia, Dancing Dreams, Helping Hands Behavioral Outreach, Rocking Horse Rehabilitation, Special Strides and The Autism Think Tank.
During this Easter season, the League is sending gift certificates to two families to purchase over-the-counter medications, groceries and clothing. One family from Manorville, NY has a 5 year old girl with Down Syndrome. She also suffers from leukemia and a heart defect. Another family from Staten Island has two sons, ages 12 and 14, who have Asperger's Syndrome, Asthma and Lymphonodular Hyperplasia.

Today, more than ever, these families need our support. As the League approaches "100 Years of Giving", we are proud of our rich history and our success in raising funds to help more families. We are more committed than ever to helping many more children and to continuing to make a difference for these families. During this Easter holiday, as we celebrate with our loved ones, we hope you will continue to support the Italian Welfare League's efforts by making a contribution.
