The BUGS After-School Program held an Ugly Sweater Party which served as a toy drive for Maimonides Children's Hospital. This is one gesture of kindness that the students pledged to carryout for the school year through the Youth Service of America Campaign.
The event incorporated an ugly sweater and gift wrapping contest. Activities also included Santa Hat decorating, Gingerbread House, Selfie and Hot Chocolate stations. Fun was had by all but more importantly the hospital staff expressed great gratitude for our donations.
