The Eastchester Women’s Club presented Supervisor Anthony S. Colavita and the Eastchester Recreation Department with a check for $5,000 for use at the Joyce Road playground.
The money has been used to transport playground equipment from the former Eastchester Child Development Building and reinstall it at the Joyce Road playground. This move allowed the Eastchester Parks and Recreation Department to improve the park at minimal cost to the residents. Supervisor Colavita thanked the Women’s Club for their donation and praised their organization for always looking to help others.
The Eastchester Women’s Club selects local organizations and projects to donate to and also presents four $500 scholarships to Eastchester and Tuckahoe graduating seniors each year.
