Catholic Charities Riverdale Osbourne Towers Hosts Fall Festival

Catholic Charities Riverdale Osbourne Towers hosted a Fall Festival where members of the residence had the opportunity to participate in various fun activities such as arts and crafts, raffles and dancing. Kids painted pumpkins and participants got to go home with fresh produce and snacks. Our DJ played the latest tunes and raffled off great prizes to the 200 residents. Many Catholic Charities programs in the area were present during the festival to celebrate autumn and share information and resources with the community. Other services included screenings for low cost health insurance by Fidelis NY, who also provided the snacks; library card applications and info from Brooklyn Public Library Brownsville branch; info from Fresh Air Fund; and info about our Community Centers.
