A special note of thanks to
local college student, Erin Tobin, who recently raised close to $7,000 for IEA
by hosting an IEA Night at the Allendale Bar and Grill.Erinís charitable spirit, hard work,
and enthusiasm are an inspiration to us all.Our thanks as well to Mr. Chris Kunish, and the entire staff
at Allendale Bar & Grill, for providing a venue and their generous donation
in support of Erinís efforts.
Special thanks to the Academy of the Holy Angels IEA Club
IEA is proud to be one of the organizations selected by the
Academy of Holy Angels (AHA) as a benefactor of their service clubs.Once a month, throughout the academic
year, IEA teens travel to AHAís Demarest campus to spend time with AHA/IEA Club
members.These monthly meetings
provide IEA students a perfect opportunity to engage in peer social
interactions and leisure activities.IEA learners look forward to this monthly excursion to show off their
skills in games such as Scattergories, Jenga, Outburst and Uno, or enjoy a friendly
conversation while completing a jigsaw puzzle.
In turn, each spring IEA welcomes AHA/IEA Club members for an in-service community day at IEAís facility.During this visit, AHA students receive a complete overview of IEAís educational program, a tour of our facility, and the opportunity to participate on projects and activities with IEA students of all age.
Additionally, since 2005, as part of their group activities, the AHA/IEA Club has conducted a fundraising endeavor for the benefit of our program.Thank you to the administration, staff and AHA/IEA Club members for their community outreach program and spirit of generosity.
