Catholic Charities Brooklyn and Queens Helps Families in Time for Back-to-School at 11th Annual Kids Fun Day in Astoria

On Friday, August 2, 2019, Catholic Charities Brooklyn and Queens excitedly hosted our 11th Annual Kids Fun Day. Held at the Parish of Our Lady of Mount Carmel in Astoria, Queens, children enjoyed an inflatable maze, face painting, use of a green screen for pictures and much more! Families accessed resources from over 30 organizations, including free blood pressure screenings from The Floating Hospital, dental screenings by Healthplex Dental, Child Safety ID’s by New York Life Insurance Company and Hands Only CPR by Weill Cornell Medicine. Special guest appearances were made by Mr. Met of the New York Mets; Johnny Thunderbird of St. John’s University; Sandy the Seagull of the Brooklyn Cyclones and stilt walkers. Thank you to our wonderful co-sponsor Fidelis Care and donors Clem Snacks/Utz Snacks, Vegan Rob’s, rock CAN roll and Ace Endico.
