Starting on December 14th, 2012 The Chris Canty Foundation will be donating toys to over 500 youth throughout the New York Tri-State area. On December 17th, 2012 The Chris Canty Foundation will be donating 100 toys to youth from Long Island, NY impacted by Hurricane Sandy. The Holiday Giveaway will take place from from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. at Prime Diagnostic Institute located at 4250 Veterans Memorial Highway, Suite 1050 West, Holbrook, NY 11741. Prime Diagnostic Imaging/Neurorays of New Jersey, US Veterans Motorcycle Club NY State, Cafe Amici, Jacob Light Foundation, the New York Nationals, and JVC BROADCASTING CO will be partnering with The Chris Canty Foundation to honor students of Harding Avenue Elementary of Lindenhurst, NY. The school serves roughly 235 children. The goal of Harding Avenue Elementary School is to provide students with an environment that meets their intellectual, emotional, and social needs. The school offers students an interdisciplinary curriculum that builds essential skills in language arts, mathematics, science, and social studies. Students participate in specialized instruction on a weekly basis in such subjects as physical education, library and media, art, general music, and computer technology.
While the elementary school exposes students to methods that encourage academic excellence, it is still important to engage them in this philanthropic effort. Canty recalls why this initative is one that is so important, “This is more about letting the parents and children know that we care in this time of need. While we feel the students should be rewarded for their academic performance, we also want them to recognize that efforts like these are necessary because so many children we be left out during the holidays this year because due to the impact of Hurricane Sandy,” he shared.

The mission of Prime Diagnostic Institute is to educate, sculpt and produce a new generation of sonographers that will be recognized for their superb clinical intellect and excellent scanning capabilities in the profession of ultrasound. Our program philosophy is based on the belief that the diagnostic medical sonographer plays an essential role in the medical team and provides a vital service to the patient and the physician by accurately detecting disease. The success of our students in applying the skills of diagnostic ultrasound is dependent on a vigorous process of hands-on training coupled with structured comprehensive instruction. The program, therefore, is committed to supporting the professional and personal development of each individual seeking this career.
