Theresa Monforte-Caraballo – Bay Ridge’s Angel

 

 

Theresa Monforte-Caraballo is Bay Ridge’s angel. Monforte-Caraballo started Grandma’s Love. She puts together bags of food for children to bring home with them on the weekends. She doesn’t just do Thanksgiving. Theresa gives extra care to families who need it all year long. 

In one article where Theresa was interviewed, she wrote about providing kids with a turkey and Thanksgiving Dinner so their families could be together. Theresa notes that she wanted the kids to be able to talk about their Thanksgiving with other kids when they returned to school the next week. I read that and cried because it was so spot on.  

Besides collecting canned foods, Monforte–Caraballo is collecting new hats, gloves, socks for kids. In August, she collected school supplies to make sure kids have what they need to start school. Throughout the year, Theresa collects gently used books as well. Her organization, Grandma’s Love – donate or volunteer.

 

Hugs,
marlene
