Santa Visits Far Rockaway
On Thursday, December 20th, 2012, Dawn Moore- Grenada, owner of Learning Leaders Group Family Daycare hosted a Christmas party for her little tikes. Santa was the main attraction to the surprise of the children. “ Far Rockaway went through a tunnel of darkness, so I decided to shine light into the pathway for the children in my daycare,” said Moore- Grenada.
Like many, Moore-Grenada is recovering from Hurricane Sandy. Her home and child care business were destroyed by the storm. Despite the devastation she persevered with continuing to rebuild her home and child care business. Her first reaction after the storm was, “Where do I start, how am I going to get through this?”
She is getting through this with assistance she received from Annette Cohen, project manager for the Child Care Means Business Training Program, a group that is sponsored by the Business Outreach Center Network (BOC), Tamika Hogan from Councilman Sanders’ office and FEMA.
