Fall Community Event

Fall Community Event

Harboring Hearts is excited to partner with Blackstone at our upcoming community event at The Children’s Hospital at Montefiore. We invite pediatric heart patients and their families to join us for an afternoon of fun and games!



Recap: Montefiore Heart Party

Harboring Hearts brought 50 patients and caregivers together for an exciting afternoon of games, dancing, crafts, and face-painting at the Montefiore Heart Party on February 12th, 2014. Harboring Hearts staff were joined by an enthusiastic team of volunteers –including special guests, Jay G from “The Real World: Ex-Plosion” and Chris Scali from “MTV’s Are You the One”. Our pediatric heart patients had a blast at our party as they took to the dance floor, mingled with our celebrity guests, and refueled with delicious heart healthy snacks provided by KIND and GoGo squeeZ.

For more details and pictures from our event, check out our photo album over at our Facebook page. And keep on the lookout for other great Community Events to sign up for in the future!

#GivingTuesday (#GT) is a movement to create a national day of giving to kick off December on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving, Black Friday and Cyber Monday. The second annual GivingTuesday is this year on December 3, 2013.

Harboring Hearts will celebrate #GivingTuesday(Dec 3, 2013) by collecting  greeting cards for heart patients in NYC hospitals.

We will accept cards until November 29th! 

We welcome cards of every shape, color, or size! No artistic skills necessary 😉  Just a warm heart and a little bit of your time!
