Suffolk County First Precinct Captain Kevin Foley heard the call for help with baby formula; he took the time to purchase and drop off two cases of Similac to the Outreach Center. Kevin knows many of the children and their parents from the soccer clinic and wanted to do his part. We still do need all types of formula as we are receiving requests every day for different formulas from clients, agencies, even health clinics, and we just do not have enough of any at this point. In need at this time: Enfamil Neuro Pro, Enfamil Gentlease, Enfamil Neuro Pro Sensitive, and Enfamil (or CVS brand) Nutramigen Hypoallergenic infant formula with Iron. Today a client ( who has limited funds and without transportation) was crying and desperate since her baby can only digest the Hypoallergenic with Iron formula because the baby is Colic. We found 4 cans of CVS’s brand and the client was absolutely elated and again cried. The pressure on these mothers is unrelenting.

Rabbi Rachel Wiesenberg, on hearing the call for prom dresses and suits, held a collection drive at Temple Beth Torah and dropped off some really nice dresses, suits and accessories to the Wyandanch Middle School for the 8th grade dance. Kelly Urena has a room in the middle school set up as a boutique for the graduates to come and make their selections! Temple Beth Torah is a longtime partner/supporter of the Outreach Center.

The season ending Soccer Clinic BBQ will be held this Monday, June 13th at the back lawn of the Outreach Center. The children really enjoyed the clinic this year and we only lost one day to rain. For this event, Covanta generously donated 250 hamburgers, 300 hot dogs and buns; each child will be called up to the front to be presented with a PAL Soccer medal and for photographs. There will also be music and dancing.

It’s been a really nice clinic this year, with over 100 children participating; these children just want a safe place to play a game they love. If we had the time and resources, we could start a league! Special thanks to Ultimate Soccer Training UST for coming down each week and training the younger girls. These children do not have access to professional trainers, so this was very special for them.

Summer Camp is around the corner!
