First Central Savings Bank and Local Kiwanians Spread Holiday Cheer

The holidays are here, and QSAC is spreading cheer with our annual holiday drive to support families of children with autism. We are thrilled to announce that First Central Savings Bank (FCSB) has made a generous grant to QSAC to support our holiday drive. At the same check presentation event, the Kiwanis Club of Astoria-Long Island City also presented a donation in support of the holiday drive.

We are excited to have the support of FCSB and the Kiwanians of Astoria and Long Island City in making the holidays brighter for more than 100 families. With their support, we can provide gifts to families of children with autism and help spread joy during the holiday season.


We thank Paul Halvatzis for spearheading the annual holiday drive and Michael Serao, Executive Vice President and Chief Administrative Officer at FCSB, for the bank's generosity. Paul and Michael are both members of QSAC's Board of Directors, and we are grateful for their leadership and dedication to our mission. We are also grateful for the QSAC team members who assisted with this year's drive: Tim Burke, Will Harrell, Michelle Espinoza, Rene Navarra, and participants from the Broadway Day Hab.

At QSAC, we believe in the power of community, especially during the holiday season. Our annual holiday drive is just one of the many programs we offer to support the families of children and adults with autism throughout the year. We are grateful for the support of our community partners like FCSB and the Kiwanians of Astoria and Long Island City, who share our vision and help us to achieve our mission.


Thank you again to FCSB and the Kiwanians for their generosity and continued partnership. We are grateful for their support and commitment to making the holidays brighter for families of children with autism.
