7th Annual Kids Fun Day 2015

Catholic Charities Brooklyn and Queens’s 7th Annual Kids Fun Day in Astoria, Queens, on August 7th, generated lots of attention for all its fun activities and community outreach! Hundreds of community residents came out to enjoy this exciting day of fun activities to gain important resources on health and safety.
This event is held annually in block-party fashion with enjoyable stations for the entire family. Attendees receive free, limited drawstring bags filled with school supplies as well as other cool giveaways and healthy snacks. Activities included music and dancing, arts and crafts, a bounce house, and much more!
See WPIX 11’s news coverage of the event here.
Also check out this video of the children having a great time dancing the Watch Me ((Whip)/ NaeNae) during a competition between WNBA’s NY Liberty’s mascot Maddie and St. John’s University mascot Johnny Thunderbird!
Catholic Charities also provides information on our programs and resources, such as our ESL program, Latino STEP Up, Behaviorial Health Services, W.I.C. Program and early childhood programs.
This event is co-sponsored by our community partner, Fidelis Care of New York.
