    Winthrop's Child Life Program received a $4,400 donation from Kids for Care, a volunteer organization focused on helping to comfort young patients in the Hospital's Pediatric Emergency Room (ER). Teens James Rubinowitz of Roslyn, Ben and Olivia Jaffe of Port Washington and Michael Price of Wheatley, established Kids for Care two years ago.

    The group, along with several friends, brainstormed a spring fundraiser hosted at Thyme, a Roslyn restaurant, to raise money for toys, games and arts and crafts supplies, which the volunteers offer at a patient's bedside.

    "It was a rewarding experience and a wonderful opportunity to help others," said Mr. Rubinowitz, who has been volunteering at the Hospital for the past year-and-a-half. "It was a great feeling to be able to do this for Winthrop, an organization that fit perfectly with our mission."

    For information about Winthrop's volunteer programs, call Carmela Anglim, CAVS, Director of Volunteer Programs, at (516) 663-2391.
