Manhasset/GN EOC Summer Program


Manhasset/Great Neck Economic Opportunity Council’s 2015 Summer Program began on July 6 and will continue for six weeks through August 14. EOC_062714CThere are 72 children, ages 5 to 13, enrolled in the program. Counselors, group leaders, volunteers and interns are college and high school students who are residents of the local community. With the generous support of a grant from the Manhasset Community Fund’s Greentree Good Neighbor Fund, age-appropriate trips have been planned for each group. The younger groups will visit the Long Island Children’s Museum, Cradle of Aviation Museum and ride Nunley’s Carousel; the older children will be going to the NY Hall of Science and the Museum of Natural History and Hayden Planetarium. The children receive breakfast, lunch and snack daily, with lunches provided through the Department of Social Services’ Summer Food Service Program. The Economic Opportunity Council (EOC) program is funded through the generosity of friends and neighbors.
