Hand in Hand – a community outreach organization that pairs teenage volunteers with special needs children and their families – recently honored Kyra Citron of Brielle as an outstanding teen volunteer at its annual tribute dinner at the Two River Theater in Red Bank.
Citron is the director of Kid’s Corner at The Charles Lafitte Foundation, a family charity that supports organizations in the areas of education, children’s advocacy, medical research and the arts.
Through her volunteer work on behalf of Hand in Hand, Citron makes weekly visits to the home of a boy named David, 6, a child with special needs, where they engage in activities and innovative crafts that foster friendship and support.
