We hope you had a wonderful Halloween. Families of the Catholic Charities Thomas A. Destefano Early Childhood Development Center in Brooklyn celebrated with a beautiful Harvest Parade created by our little ones and their families. Our families picked pumpkins that were kindly donated by a local Home Depot on Nostrand Avenue. Everyone had a great time!
