EAC Network is proud to have a long relationship with the Brooke Jackman Foundation, whose mission is to create and support programs enhancing the literacy and self-esteem of disadvantaged children and their families in and around the New York area. Every year before the start of the school year, we receive a huge delivery of Brooke Packs from the foundation. These Brooke Packs are backpacks filled with school supplies and engaging, age appropriate books. Check out our photos below from last year’s donation of Brooke Packs and some of the clients who received them!
