The Coler Auxiliary, Gifts and Cheer to Our Disabled Neighbors


When the holidays come, our neighbors to the north have no better friends than the Coler Auxiliary, Roosevelt Islanders stepping up again, this year.

The Roosevelt Island Daily

“The Coler Auxiliary funds annual gifts for all the residents,” says long time member Judith Berdy. “I am chair of the Auxiliary, and we have  a group of dedicated volunteers.”

Judith Berdy arrives with gifts for Coler residents.

“We order health and beauty products for everyone, fanny packs, gloves, hats for men and totes for women.”

“The Auxiliary is a 501 (c) 3 that provides the needs that Coler cannot fund. We pay for entertainments, trips, special meals and holiday events.

“The last two years have been challenging with many restrictions and the residents being unable to leave the campus.  The Auxiliary funds every resident and has served Coler since 1952.”
