On Friday, Nov. 15, volunteers from Ameriprise Financial came to CCBQ’s Queens Community Center in Astoria to help distribute fish and paint our Community Center room. Organized by the President of our POP Housing Corporation Board of Trustees, Darrel Upson, Ameriprise brought 10 volunteers to help including their children.
United Seafood Enterprises donated 500 pounds of Tilapia, five times the amount of fish of years past to the volunteer event. The fish will go to families from the Queens Community Center in advance of the Thanksgiving holiday.
The paint, used to re-fresh the walls on the Community Center room, was donated by Sherwin-Williams.
Thank you to everyone who volunteered and donated!! Click here for a photo gallery and visit our Facebook page for more.
