To make a difference in children’s lives.


Pictured above is Erica Schwartz, a Child Life Specialist-Pediatric Specialty at Yale New Haven Children’s Cancer Center, accepting a donation from Frank and Hailey Ciarleglio.

The donations dropped off by Frank and Hailey Ciarleglio this week were donated to the Academy of Kempo’s “Help a Child Initiative” by The Home Depot located on Dixwell Avenue in Hamden.

The Help a Child Initiative is a program started by Frank Ciarleglio, the Instructor at the Academy of Kempo Martial Arts to help children with life threatening diseases.Our program is designed to  collect item such as arts and crafts and general items needed to assist “The Tommy Fund for Childhood Cancer” and the Child Life Specialist-Pediatric Specialty Clinic at the Yale-New Haven Children’s Hospital” said Ciarleglio.

The Home Depot generously donated just over a case of kits to the Help a Child Initiative. The kits that The Home Depot donated will help to bring a little bit of normalcy to the children’s lives. “It is very difficult when anyone is dealing with a life threatening illness, but much more so to see children going through it. Being a parent of a child undergoing treatments I see firsthand how the items we collect affect the children and their parents. The smiles and laughs that are seen and heard in the clinic as the children do their crafts (which are 100 percent donated items) brings joy to everyone hearts” said Ciarleglio.

The Academy has a list of items they are collecting as well as a wish list from the Child Life Specialist-Pediatric Specialty Clinic on its web site, www.academyofkempo.com. “I know that in these economically challenging times that it is hard for people to find anything extra in their budget, but even one item will help to make a difference,” Ciarleglio said.

All products can be dropped off at the Academy of Kempo Martial Arts, located at 1890 Dixwell Avenue, Hamden Connecticut 06514. For more information on how to get involved, you can contact the Academy at (203) 288-9990, or visit them on the web at www.academyofkempo.com.
