Make The Holidays A Little Brighter For The Racetrack Families

Since 2002 The Belmont Child Care Association (BCCA) has held a Holiday Shopping Bazaar at Anna House for the children of the backstretch workers and other neighborhood children. This year the event is being held on December 11th. On that date hundreds of children will “shop” for gifts for their parents and siblings. Gifts that we have bought, or were donated to The BCCA. This is the ninth year of having this Holiday Bazaar at Anna House at Belmont Race Track, and we expect over 500 children this year. Along with a BCCA Board Member, or a volunteer, a child goes through our “department store” and selects gifts. The gifts are wrapped and tagged, and the child leaves knowing that they will be able to put some gifts under their tree for their parents and siblings.

We do not budget for this bazaar and we depend on the generosity of our donors to make the holiday a happy one for the families who work on the backstretch. As we are in the midst of an economic downturn, the prospects for us to receive as much in donations are not good. We are seeking gifts of toys or clothing for our families, or monetary gifts that we will use to shop for gifts.

Send your gifts or donations to:

Belmont Child Care Association, 2150 Hempstead Turnpike, Elmont, NY11003


We accept American Express, VISA and MasterCard’s.
