Chai-Lifeline's i-Shine program is a unique after-school initiative for elementary and middle school children affected by the illness or loss of a close family member. It meets Wednesday afternoons from 3:45-6:45pm at Westchester Day School. When life's challenges become overwhelming, i-Shine provides relief and assistance. It's an environment filled with laughter, learning and friendship. High school volunteers are a vital part of the program, often forming life-long relationships with their "buddies." i-Shine is in need of drivers to transport SAR HS volunteers, all of whom are vaccinated, to and from the program, as well as drivers who can drive elementary school children to and from WDS. Please contact Daphne Rawson - or 914-262-0734 or Linda Zucker - or 914-837-9019 if you can help.
