NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – A small store on the Upper West Side helps make a big difference for at-risk youth.
As WCBS 880’s Sean Adams reported, A Time For Children on Amsterdam Avenue at 84th Street is full of games, toys, puzzles, books and clothes.
But the owner of the boutique doesn’t make a penny and she employs troubled teens to arm them with skills for the future.
“It goes directly to the Children’s Aid Society. We are 100 percent nonprofit funded by a family foundation,” owner Marjorie Stern told Adams. “You’re a felon, try to get a job. It’s hard enough in today’s world.”
