Today the Inheritance of Hope volunteers and staff have visited LaGuardia, JFK and Newark airports and welcomed 7 families from Florida, West Virginia, Oregon, Utah, Texas, and Georgia. We are pleased to share that all the families arrived on time and with all their luggage. They drove over a bridge or through a tunnel to the island of Manhattan to the Hotel Novotel. The view from this magnificent hotel looks out over Times Square. Within minutes of arriving some of the kids went with our volunteers to see Mickey and Minnie Mouse who were also visiting Time Square today. What a special surprise!
We all enjoyed a yummy lunch at the Hotel Novotel and then the families were able to rest and settle in their rooms. Currently, I am enjoying listening to the kids laugh and play as they interact with our volunteers and each other. They are full of energy and very excited! There is no doubt they have already found some new friends.
The parents are getting to know each other in the room next door and soon we will be heading out for dinner.
