Let’s Read TOGETHER, a Family Bonding Initiative

Families of the Catholic Charities Parkside Family Child Care in Brooklyn recently hosted “Let’s Read TOGETHER”, an event geared towards proud fathers, uncles, grandfathers, brothers, cousins, godfathers and male figures making a difference in the lives of their little ones. Our families spent quality time reading, learning and most importantly, bonding.
Since the pandemic began, Catholic Charities Brooklyn and Queens has witnessed a 1,000 percent increase in food requests and has provided much-needed food packages and services at 49 Catholic Charities parish-based food pantries. In total, the agency distributed over $3.4 million in food assistance in 2020. In addition, Catholic Charities witnessed a 37 percent increase in clients in 2020, and continued to deliver mental health counseling, housing services, family services and early childhood education.
