Dear Save for College Program Families,
Thank you to those of you who joined us this morning for the Astoria Houses Community Scholarship Celebration! It was wonderful to come together to celebrate the Resident Association’s campaign which raised $1,000 for your child’s NYC Scholarship Account. You can check out some photos from the event below.
If you were unable to attend the celebration, you can access it via our Facebook and YouTube pages. Please note you can still pick up your goodie bags at the Urban Upbound office at 4-21 Astoria, from Monday 2/8 to Friday 2/12, between the hours of 10am and 4pm. If these days and times do not work for you, call us at (833) 543 7473 and we will arrange an alternative.
For more information about the Save for College Program and how you can activate your child’s NYC Scholarship Account, please feel free to review the materials below and make an appointment with us if you have additional questions!
