Who is Mary Neary?
Mary Neary is the mother of SNACK*'s founder, Jackie Ceonzo, and grandmother of Jackie's son and SNACK 21+ member, Joey. Joe and his friends label, package, and ship Mary Neary Cosmetics orders on a daily basis through the newly implemented 21+ program at SNACK*, a New York City based non-profit organization committed to the continuous growth and empowerment of children and adults with special needs.
Why Cosmetics? As the founder of Mary Neary Cosmetics, Mary wanted nothing more for Joey than a full life filled with fun and friends. As Joey and his peers grew older and their needs changed, Mary suggested that SNACK* take over her prized cosmetics business, providing these aspiring young adults with purpose. SNACK* 21+ provides these special young adults with a safe and welcoming environment, where they can experience fun, make friends, learn independence, practice skills, and gain a sense of accomplishment.
