The National Council of Jewish Women (NCJW) Lakeville Section presented the Great Neck/Manhasset/Nassau BOCES Parent-Child Home Program (PCHP) with its annual donation. Based at the Cumberland Avenue Center, PCHP, which benefits eligible 16-month- to three-year-olds and their parents/grandparents, has been in the district for more than 40 years. Research shows that early-childhood programs such as PCHP contribute positively to children’s performance in school. NCJW has supported it since its inception.
