Rivertowns Girls Night Out Supports Local RTF

In May, UJA-Federation of New York’s Rivertowns Women’s Philanthropy came together to raise funds for The Sally & Anthony Mann Center, a residential treatment facility in Hawthorne for teenage girls with psychiatric conditions run by UJA partner, The Jewish Board. During the evening, guests made bath salt packages for the young women at The Mann Center and brought new or gently used young adult books to donate to the residents. A professional make-up demonstration was also featured.

This event was part of the community’s larger philanthropic initiative to fund a new recreation room for the residents, who work with center staff to turn their lives around by through professional counseling, job training, and a safe haven in a compassionate environment.
