Volunteers from Texas Visit Colin-Newell Head Start Center

A group from the Good Shepard Catholic Communityof Fort Worth, Texas,  came all the way out to our Colin-Newell Head Start Center in Queensto volunteer their time with the children of the program. The 40 volunteers rotated between the eight classrooms at Colin-Newell to teach the kids different songs. The group takes a service trip once a year where they give back to those in need around the nation. CCBQ was lucky enough to have them volunteer with us twice; the first time at the Fresh Air Fund Kiddie Carnival with our program in Jamaica, Queens earlier in the month. The high school students range from ages 14-17. CCBQ appreciates all of our volunteers and continues to grow our volunteer program. If you or anyone you know is interested in volunteering your time to CCBQ please contact Maia Arroyo-Roppo at 718-722-6175 or email
