Good afternoon everyone,

It’s a nice day out there with mostly sunny skies and an afternoon high of 50 in the city. Mostly clear tonight, with lows in the upper 30s for New York City and upper 20s for the far north-west suburbs. These temps are running about 10 degrees above normal for today.

Dec. 26 Tonight

This trend continues right into tomorrow, with another sunny day. Slightly warmer, with highs in the low 50s for your Saturday.

After that, Sunday will bring the next chance of some showers as a cold front approaches. Mostly cloudy, with highs in the upper 40s.


Behind the front, temps drop back down for next week and into the new year. It’ll definitely feel more like winter around here soon. But for now, enjoy the mild weather this weekend!

Check back in soon!

NEWARK, N.J. (AP) — Shenida Griffith knows all too well what it’s like to have to choose between taking care of a sick kid and holding down a job.

The Trenton resident says she was fired two years ago from a chain restaurant after her son, now 5, was hospitalized and she asked to take several days off to care for him.

“When my kids get sick, I’m a very hands-on kind of person,” said Griffith, who’s 21. “I literally want to be there for every snot, every tear.”

Soon, she hopes, she and other New Jersey parents will have that option.

The Holiday Inn Westbury Sends Holiday Cheer to Senior Citizens in Need



The Holiday Inn in Westbury, NY met with representatives from Family & Children’s Association and offered aid to the organization’s “Silver Bells” program over the holiday season, when the need for supplies for local senior citizens becomes critical.

Nov. 20, 2014SMITHTOWN, N.Y.The Family & Children’s Association located through out Long Island has developed a very special program aimed toward helping over 9,000 senior citizens who are homebound, living in nursing homes, assisted living facilities or adult homes. This program’s mission is to bring holiday cheer to local senior citizens in need.

This program is called “Silver Bells”, and offers caring individuals a chance to give from the heart to those 60 years and over who are isolated and alone during the holiday season. Family & Children’s Association is accepting donations of practical, everyday items that greatly enhance the well being of seniors. All of the donations are placed in holiday gift bags by volunteers and delivered during the weeks leading up to New Years Eve.

The Holiday Inn in Westbury, NY owned by Mr. & Mrs. Halpern heard about this program and were eager to help. (http://www.hiwestburyhotel.com) met with representatives from Family & Children’s Association and offered aid to the organization over the holiday season, when the need for supplies becomes critical.

The owners and staff of the Holiday Inn supplied the organization with large boxes of donated tissues, detergents, and a collection of toiletries. Mr. Barry Halpern and Mrs. Ellen Halpern, who are known for being extremely charitable have participated in, and hosted many charity events at the hotel. When asked why working with these local nonprofit organizations was so important, Mrs. Halpern explained;“Barry and I have always given to charitable organizations. We feel this concept is just incredible and we look forward to working closely with the Family & Children’s Association.”

Franklin Manchester, the General Manager of the hotel said; “The Holiday Inn Westbury truly loves giving back to the community. We believe this to be a great opportunity and a privilege to assist those in need that are right here on Long Island.”

Joyce Mullen, the Director of Marketing & Communications at Family and Children’s Association had the opportunity to be present at the donation pick up. The organization was very thankful for the kindness and generosity shown with the hotel’s donation to the Silver Bells program, and looks forward to working with them in their shared mission to help Long Islander’s in need.

“We are thrilled to be partnering with the Holiday Inn and look forward to a long and fulfilling friendship.”Said Joyce Mullen, who also informed us that if any individuals would like to donate to their Silver Bells program, they can do so by sending donations to the organization, or if they do not have time to shop, they can simply visit www.familyandchildrens.org/donate to make a donation and Family & Children’s Assoc. will do the shopping for them.
