Wishes Granted / Hand Up Grants (HUGs)

  • Hand Up Grant (HUG) helps local CNA student

    At a low time in her life, Jennifer Garrett said she needed a fairy godmother. She got one. Actually, she got 700 fairy godmothers!
    Garrett said she was bless by the non-profit organization in Manhattan known as Fairy Godmothers. This organization is women helping women in this area. In Garrett’s case, she was awarded a Hand Up Grant that is helping her accomplish her goal to become a registered nurse.
    "This has been HUGE in my life,” Garrett said. "I can’t wait to be a Fairy Godmother and give back by helping others.”
    Garrett was the first recipient to receive the HUG from the Fairy Godmothers.
