This problem-solving competition served as an innovative way for students to learn and practice math, and develop critical listening skills. Each student received a set of math questions with only 30 seconds to answer each problem.

Catholic Charities Brooklyn and Queens has very dedicated staff. Like the drivers of our Catholic Charities Southwest Queens Home Delivered Meals Program.
