Bring Smiles To The Faces Of Teen Moms This Christmas

Looking for a way to touch the lives of Brooklyn families this holiday? Consider donating a Target gift card to new teen moms at CHiPS.

“I met 4 of the 5 moms who reside with their babies at CHiPS on Tuesday at a holiday party,” wrote Park Slope Parents founder Susan Fox. “Most are still teens, without a family that is giving them support — so they live at the shelter with other new moms.

“We gave them gifts for their babies (ranging in age from 2 weeks to 5 months or so),” she continued, “but the moms left empty handed.”

That’s when Ms. Fox had an idea. After speaking with Denise Scaravella, executive director at CHiPS, she decided to arrange a gift card collection for the teen moms at the shelter.
