Compass Realty Supports Port Provides Powered By The Nicholas Center

Diaper Drive supports pantry program for local neighbors in need
Port Provides Powered by The Nicholas Center received a generous donation from Compass Realty in Manhasset. Compass partnered with The Nicholas Center, inviting their realtors to make a holiday donation. The response was overwhelming, resulting in boxes and boxes of diapers! Port Provides offers donations of items to local food pantries not covered by the SNAP program (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program) such as cleaning supplies and personal hygiene items, including much-needed diapers.
“As a resident and business owner, I feel a strong commitment and responsibility to give back to our community and assist those in need,” shared Traci Conway Clinton of Compass Realty. “I take great pride in my team at Compass for their recent initiative to partner with The Nicholas Center and the pantry program, Port Provides Powered by The Nicholas Center for this year’s Holiday Diaper Drive helping local families struggling to afford basic needs. I am sincerely impressed and humbled by the incredible work this organization and the staff put in each day to make so many lives brighter in our local communities. We are grateful for having the opportunity to assist and very much look forward to future collaborations.“
“The Nicholas Center is grateful for Compass Realty and all our community partners,” said Lee Anne Vetrone, development director, “With their help, we are able to offer varied and important experiences to the autistic participants we serve and make a real difference in our communities.”
The Nicholas Center has revolutionized the way autistic adults learn, live and work – offering vocational training, supported employment, meaningful community projects and vital peer connections. Port Provides is an innovative program pairing two underserved and often marginalized populations – those with autism and those struggling in our communities. The Nicholas Center procures, packages and delivers essential items – personal hygiene, cleaning supplies and meat to 2,000 neighbors-in-need via local food pantries. Participants gain valuable vocational skills and build confidence as they interact with community members at the pantries…the food pantries receive vital donations and assistance from our team! A win-win. For more information or to get involved,
