There are many reasons to enjoy the upcoming holidays. For the youth of Children’s Home, the holidays mean a direct connection with the support and generosity of the community through our annual Holiday Giving Program.
Elmira Business Institute invites you to experience the joy of giving to children and youth who have experienced difficulties in their lives. Join us in making this holiday season joyful for the residents in our care!
