  • Thank you Gymboree!

    Very sad to hear the Gymboree Play & Music on Long Island will be closing later this month. Our very first play date in 2009 was held at the Woodbury Gymboree and we've been building friendships there ever since. We will always be grateful to all the folks at Gymboree for embracing our message of inclusion and giving our pals a fun and safe place to play!

  • Planting Seeds of Community

    Wanted to take a moment to thank Sean Acosta for all of his efforts to raise money for and awareness of the PeerPals.org mission.  Sean was honored as our Community Champion at our 8th Annual Planting Seeds of Community Dinner on April 12, at the Jericho Terrace.  This fundraising dinner provides 85% of the funding for our program.  Thanks to all of our donors who provided the items for our raffle and silent auction.  Also, many thanks to our supporters who come back year after year to make the Planting Seeds of Community dinner a success!
