Morton P.

Many of the School Holiday Respite Program [SHRP] families do not have the means or abilities to bring their children out into the community as much as they’d like. One of these students is Morton who attends 79M and has been involved with the Manhattan SHRP for several years. Morton's father is very good about completing paperwork, medical exams and advocating on behalf of Morton. Morton will be graduating soon and will aging out the program. During last year's trips the Manhattan group visited the Aquarium. Following our visit the group walked down to the Coney Island boardwalk to take in the sights. Morton reported that he had never touched sand before or been on the beach. Despite the weather being chilly Morton was urged to take off his shoes and feel the sand in between his toes! Morton did so, and even made it down to the water. For most of us visiting the beach seems like a relatively mundane experience, but for Morton, who grew up in Harlem (not even that far from the shore), this experience was very special. Morton is a really amazing person who we have had the fine privilege to serve and watch grow.
