December 14, 2012 – The Moment of Thanks Toy Drive benefitting CORA services in the lower Northeast section of the city has concluded and has been a huge success.  Almost 700 toys were collected, far exceeding the challenge of 500 toys issued by Dean JoAnne Epps.  Congratulations and thanks to all who contributed to the effort!

The toys will be distributed through CORA, a nonprofit organization that provides education, counseling, therapy, and guidance to more than 16,000 children and families experiencing emotional, academic, and social challenges. All toys will go to benefit needy families in the lower Northeast section of the city (Frankford/Juniata/Bridesburg/Northwood).  The drive was coordinated in partnership with Kim Washington ’09, who works for CORA.
