OUR MISSIONThe mission of Alyssa's Angels is to do work that reflects the spirit of giving to and caring for others, which was so important to Alyssa Rose Bruno. Funds that are generated will be used to support projects that will directly benefit the most disadvantaged and needy children in the Rochester area. These projects will focus on children who are:
- Victims of abuse and/or neglect
- Experiencing serious medical, behavioral or emotional problems
- Lacking in family or other community supports
Alyssa's Angel 2017 Holiday Gift Project
Since 2011, Alyssa’s Angels, a Henrietta-based charity, has organized an annual holiday gift project, which benefits local non-profit organizations that
serve children in-need. In this project, they partner with an area business or group to support selected charities and combine to donate a total of $1000 to each one.
“We are grateful for all of the important work that is done to help children by these organizations,” said Alyssa’s Angels Chairman Chris Bruno. “The generosity of our partners in support of this project is invaluable and always deeply appreciated.”
The organizations that Alyssa’s Angels selected this year, and the respective co-sponsors for each, are:
- Non-profit: Holy Apostles Christmas Blessing Project
Co-sponsor: Modica Law Firm
- Non-profit: St. Peter's Kitchen
- Non-profit: Daystar
- Non-profit: Mary's Place Children's Christmas Party
Co-sponsor: Rochester Police Locust Club
