Serving our community is vitally important to our mission and our calling to serve. We teach our students that it is possible to give back to our community, no matter your age. Living our values reminds us that we must help each other and take care of those who are less fortunate. Each academic year we will partner with an organization to celebrate giving in our community. Our partner organization for this year is Elizabeth Seton Children's Center. As a non-profit ourselves, we know the impact our contribution has on others. Thank you for bringing the spirit of giving from your heart into their lives.

About Elizabeth Seton Children's Center
Elizabeth Seton Children’s Center is the largest and most proficient non-profit health center for children with severe medical complexity. It is the national leader in caring for this unique population. The children’s center offers vital medical, educational and rehabilitative services to 169 children so they can lead their fullest life. By also providing social, recreational and spiritual programs, the children’s center gives the children and their families a place to call home – and the peace of mind of true support 24 hours a day.
We understand the reality of our children’s conditions, but we do not focus on their limits. We give them a chance to learn, grow, change, laugh, be joyful and experience a child’s life.
Almost all our children are on Medicaid, with 95 percent at or below poverty. Most come from New York City, with the rest from Westchester, Hudson Valley, Long Island and New Jersey. Elizabeth Seton Children’s Center is sponsored by the Sisters of Charity Ministry Network. Learn more at www.setonchildrens.org and follow us on social media @SetonChildrens.
