Heart of a Legend donates computers to Third Street Alliance in Easton
The word legend is defined as "a famous or important person who is known for doing something extremely well'. The Heart of A Legend transcends beyond the physical ability of a person, but operates on the premise of the heart.
No one achieves greatness without the help, support and even cheers of others. But what makes a person great is their recognition of the help received and striving to make things better for another.The Heart of A Legend is a non-profit organization dedicated to beautifying the city of Easton Pennsylvania.

THIRD STREET ALLIANCE
The Third Street Alliance for Women & Children provide a safe and healthy space for women, children and families to live, learn and thrive.
Our main building, the Simon Mansion, was built in 1902 and is on the National Register of Historic Places. Since its beginning in 1909 as a grassroots YWCA, the agency has worked to meet the needs of a changing world. It was initially founded to help working women and the influx of immigrants.
At that time, the “YW” was involved in the education of young women working in factories and provided opportunities for physical, mental and social development, offering rental rooms for women moving into the area. In the early 1980’s, the organization separated from the national “Y”, and realigned as a human services agency, taking on the new problems of homelessness, child care for working families, and care of older adults.
