Photo of the Week: We Get by with a Little Help from Our Friends IICF and Elmo!

Members of IICF with Woodside Head Start/EarlyLearn students and Elmo

Three cheers for the Insurance Industry Charitable Foundation (IICF), whose members visited our Ficalora Family Foundation Head Start Center to read to our preschoolers and engage in fun activities together. They also brought along one of the children’s favorite furry monsters: Elmo! You can see the excitement on the children’s faces — and the adults’.

“Once again, we were impressed with you, your team, and your adorable children!” wrote Elizabeth Myatt, IICF’s VP, Chief Program Officer, and Executive Director Northeast Division. “There is no doubt that you are making a BIG difference. Thank you for letting us work with your teachers and children yesterday. Everyone really enjoyed the time at EarlyLearn Woodside.” Stay tuned for future news about how the IICF is supporting The Child Center and ensuring that all children can grow and thrive.
