We have been so touched by the outpouring of support from our parents, community and friends during these difficult times. From virtual fundraisers to benefit our programs, hundreds of donated meals, gifts for our group homes, we have seen everyone come together in amazing ways to help those we serve. These weekly newsletters have become a testament to all of the positivity you have helped to spread.
We hope these weekly updates have been a bright spot in your day as we continue on the path to a "new normal." If there are any stories you would like to share about what your family has been up to during this time, please send your photos to email@example.com.
Marcum Foundation, BurgerFi Partner to Feed
Eden II's Participants & Staff
There were smiles all around our group homes last week as all of our Staten Island and Long Island residences were treated to meals from BurgerFi through a partnership with Marcum LLP and the Marcum Foundation! We are thankful to BurgerFi and Marcum for their generous donation of 400+ meals for our staff and participants. We also want to give a special thanks to Lauren Baker-Anderson for connecting us with the Marcum Foundation.

Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, our Eden II families and community have done so much to cheer up our staff and participants in any way they can, including sending delicious meals to our group homes to enjoy while they have been socially distancing.
